    " This is perhaps one of the greatest Victorian novels I have ever read. Hardy is the master of literature. His characters are unforgettable, his storytelling is priceless. More than likely, I will re-read this novel in the near future. A masterful work by a masterful author. "

    " I think this is Hardy's best novel. Certainly my favourite. Not as pity-inducing as Tess, but equally riveting. "

About the Author
Author Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy (1840–1928), English poet and novelist, was born on the Egdon Heath in Dorset. He studied in Dorchester and apprenticed to an architect before leaving for London, where he began to write. Unable to find a public for his poetry, which idealized the rural life, he turned to the novel and met with success as well as controversy. The strong public reaction against some of his darker themes turned Hardy back to writing verse. Today several of his novels are considered tragic masterpieces.
