Wessex Tales by Thomas Hardy, 14 Mar 2012
Wessex Tales is a beautifully crafted series of short stories, typically not of the most joyful outcomes, but the grammar and vocabulary leaves modern novels shallow and simple. All the stories draw the reader into the heart of Hardy country and tells of small domestic incidents but also gives great insite into psychology and how this effects the characters so exquisitely woven by Hardy.
A good starter book for readers who have not been able to read Hardy in the past.
