    " I did not pay particular attention to this book as this was part of my english class curriculum in school - but cannot fail to mention the erudition of the scholarly writing of this much renowned author. "

    " Another gem from Thomas Hardy. Mr. Melbury, timber merchant at Little Hintock decides to educate his only daughter high above her station. This complicates her betrothal to Giles, a simple but honest cider merchant. Add in an unscrupulous and rakish doctor who is trying to buy the skull of Melbury's servant, and a self absorbed lady of the manor, Mrs. Charmond and the novel has all the elements needed to keep the reader engaged until the end. Like most Hardy books, don't look for a happy ending, at least not when a disgruntled suitor has a man-trap. "

    " This book was a little hard to get into, but I did enjoy it. It's true to Hardy form. It's not a depressing book as much as a realistic book. I liked the little twist at the end. This would be a good book for a book club discussion - if there were copies available. "

    " You'd never know a classic would have such drama and scandals (wrapped up in a polite old-English certainly) "
