ROMANTIC AND ATMOSPHERIC!!
on 12 January 2013
When i started this book i wondered if it would live up to the more popular classics by Hardy, such as Tess of The D'urbavilles. I am very impressed and it is definitly as good as the others that i have read.
This is one of the most atmospheric books that i have read. the descriptions of the area in which the book is set are incredible as is the story itself.
As is typical of Hardy, this is another tragic tale of loving the wrong person and trying to correct it before it is too late. The chararcters are very believable and i found that i could almost imagine living in what seems like these most romantic of times. The hills,the heather etc...
Overall a brilliant book.
