This review is from: Tess of the D'Urbervilles (Audio CD)
Hardy evockes such a powerful impression of women as strong independent people which at the time must have seemed brave for such a highbrow author. It seems a very modern novel in this respect and draws together all of his usual themes of class, tragedy, fate and love. His writing is at time's incredibly moving and powerful that you often need to take time away just to digest it's beauty and humanity. It is the perfect novel for me and one i now regard as my favourite ever. It always seems a shame that so few young people like myself read such a brilliant authors work .
