    " I couldn't even make it all the way through this book before I finally gave up on reading it altogether. I kept trying to force myself to finish it, but no book is worth that much effort. Don't bother wasting your time with this one. "

    " I read this book when I was in the hospital after having Kirsti. I like character development books and had somehow missed reading this in high school so I picked it up and read it. It was just as I expected. "

    " "George's son had done his work so thoroughly that he was considered too good a workman to live, and was, in fact, taken and tragically shot at twelve o'clock that same day--another instance of the untoward fate which so often attends dogs and other philosophers who follow out a train of reasoning to it's logical conclusion, and attempt perfectly consistent conduct in a world made up so largely of compromise." A brilliant thought that reminds me of both Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. Good book, unexpected ending. "

    " This is one of my favorite Hardy novels. If I had to list them in order of affection Far from the Madding Crowd would place third. The imagery is powerful, and its beauty trumps its heavy handedness. Hardy is a tragedian and this novel is no exception, but there is a finesse to it here that is not found in "The Mayor of Casterbridge" or even "'Tess". He does not merely subject the characters to their fates; we watch them lead themselves. "
