Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy
Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy
4.0 out of 5 stars A tangled tragedy, 2 Sep 2014
An enjoyable book, full of the usual wonderful description you expect of Hardy. Slower paced than some of his other works, but still very satisfying.
A Voyage to New Holland, Etc. in the Year 1699 by William Dampier
4.0 out of 5 stars a very good read, 4 July 2013
Enjoyed this journal. Brief descriptions of Australia, fantastic though to gain an understanding of the process of exploration at this time. Interesting accounts of contacts with aboriginal tribes.
The Flood by Émile Zola

5.0 out of 5 stars The Flood, 9 April 2013
An excellent tragic short story. Half an hour of intense reading. Zola's ability to engage you with the characters in such a short time is outstanding.
