I love Thomas Hardy. There is just something about the way that he wrote that draws me in, even while the stories are often depressing. This, fortunately, is not one of his most depressing stories. Bathsheba's choices can be frustrating, but they make for an interesting story. Even with her less-than-wise choices, I still liked her as a character, and wanted to find out what would happen to her. I love Gabriel Oak. He's a very solid kind of man, always ready to help her out, but also ready to let her know where she is going wrong. The other main characters in this book (Troy and Boldwood), are also very well-drawn and interesting. Reminds me of why I love Thomas Hardy.
