There were some great plot surprises in this book, but I'm only going three stars, because a more accurate name for this book would the "The A**hole of Casterbridge." Not "The Flawed but Sympathizable Human of Casterbridge," not "The Sinful but Eventually Redemptive Soul of Casterbridge," just "The A**hole of Casterbridge." I ended the book disliking the main character just as much as I did in the beginning, and I don't think that was the intention.
