it was ok
Read in July, 2011

Meh. Thomas Hardy takes out all of his really wonderful descriptive prose and gets down to just plot. He actually isn't that great on plot. Makes the book shorter, but with all of the richness gone there really isn't anything left. And, how creepy is it that the main character falls in love with a woman, her daughter, AND her grand-daughter. Something isn't quite right here.
