bookshelves: literature
Recommended for: people who feel better when they compare their life to Jude's.
Read in February, 2007

If you like sunshine, unicorns, and lollipops, then you probably won't like this book. If it's raining and you're vaguely manic depressive or if you just want to sit around for a few hours and feel sorry for someone other than yourself - well, Jude's your man.

I can't fault Hardy's talents at controlling the mood. Even before it became horrendously horrendous, there was a pall of doom that hung over everything that poor Jude touched.

Poor F'n Jude


Tilly Berendt 'Horrendously horrendous' sums it up beautifully ;)
