    " I agree with many others, this isn't the best of Thomas Hardy, but I can clearly see his style. Just an odd story of what I think some people go through when falling in love. Never quite being happy with their "well beloved" finding an excuse to get out of relationships, hoping to find it in another. "

    " Thomas Hardy is one of my favorite authors but, this is not one of my favorite books written by him. It fell short in so many ways. I wasn't left feeling anything at the end of the story, which is not how he usually makes me feel. "

    " I was excited when I found out this story was about a sculptor, but it was only a whim of the author. It was more a character flaw in the story than a calling, which is too bad. Sculpture is one of the harder art forms to be called to. I had hoped for more about the art. But it was mostly about the emotional life or lack of one of the main character. "

    " A weird story. I'd suggest starting with Jude the Obscure or Hardy's poems instead. "
