    " This was not my favorite book by Thomas Hardy by any means. It was, however, amusing in its description of the small town life and excellent in the details of 19th century music and dance. The story itself is brief and light, very unlike later Thomas Hardy works. And the small point about Fancy not revealing to Dick her acceptance of the minister's proposal was odd and seemed trivial. "

    " Fantastic start - quintessential Hardy's Wessex. But an extremely thin plot - like watered down gruel from a Casterbridge workhouse... "

    " I thought that this book was a lovely read, and really enjoyed it. Then they made it into some Masterpiece Theatre bit and it was not quite as good as the book. Oh well. "

    " This is a singular work in Thomas Hardy's oeuvre. Written in 1872, it is one of Hardy's first novels. Some critics have said that his naivete and inexperience with the world and as a writer contribute to its dissimilarity from the bulk of Hardy's work (think Tess of the d'Urbervilles or Jude the Obscure). However light and humorous it is, the novel itself is still about the decline of stable rural society in the Victorian era, albeit in the guise of the love affair between Fancy Day and Dick Dewy, and the traditional rural church choir (consisting of farmers and their fiddles) falling out of favor with the new "modern" pastor, who preferred the organ. I especially enjoyed the questioning of morality amongst the characters, who were constantly asking what is "good" or right". Overall a quick, fun, and light read. "
