the novel is nice, which is written by you. but i did not expect the death of Tess.
This was my third attempt at reading this classic and I'm glad I persevered. While the described emotions are quite extreme it was great to lose oneself in atmospheric Wessex. The countryside is a real character in the development of the story. I did find myself torn between whether or not Tess should have told Angel and am still not sure of the right answer. I don't know whether the twist at the end was quite in keeping with the rest of the story but I wasn't sure how Hardy would bring it to an end. Overall a classically written love story to be recommended to those who enjoy the classics.
