My way of thinking hardy has so many superior novels stories poems that you would be better served just avoiding this one and Untitled 2 going on to one of thereat ones like jude or mayor of casterbridge instead but there is something sneaking up in me a bubblingly vague feeling of well wishing for poor doomed tess that makes me think i might convince myself of this novel s adeuacy if not reatness by the end of the reviewthere that should serve as enough blathering to hide any actual spoilers from the feedwho knew when i woke up this morning that i would be writing a review of my least favorite thomas hardy novels no onebut i find myself thinking of this book a lot lately having just come off another retail christmas at the book factory and having had my readers advisory skills put to the test in such a major way once i feel like i should say something about this book because i am so conflicted about it and every time i am called upon to suggest a classic or a sad book i find myself automatically drawn to hardy and i always say the same thing except for tessi never suggest tessand it is infuriating because i know for a fact that tess was hardy s favorite female character and i love hardy i trust him but lordWHAT DOES HE SEE IN HERtess is loyal and passionate but utterly hopeless she makes all the wrong decisions but she just keeps barreling along blithely well not blithely like trudging along determinedly hardy s whole philosophy in his books is that you make a mistake and you never ever stop paying for it but it is hard to see in this book just which mistake is the origin of the miseryif anything the mistake is not tess own but her father s in etting too drunk to drive putting tess in the position of accidentally killing their horse as she takes the reins ooh a punthis is of course shades of mayor of casterbridge drinking causes all sorts of accidentsis the accident that of overreaching one s situation in life can t be because the fake d urberville s are doing just fine with their purchased title while the real ones are living in povertyis the mistake Selby S Stardom getting raped probably not that it s her fault obviously but damnirl learn to recognize those wolves but no obviously someone in tess position is not Selby Snaps going to recognize a risk when she sees one sweet dummy sweet beloved by her creator dummy i can only assume that in this book that is meant to be the origin because everything that happens after that is just one kick in the ballsa ruined reputation a dead child falling for a man named angel freaking clare i mean honestly this should really have been another signal no man named angel clare is everoing to be open minded even if he has his own secrets hypocritical bastard ugh and then the rest of it oh Scandals And Secrets god that damned rug what a terrible way to communicate sensitive information tess that is vintage hardy though and that plot development i am totally okay with in fact i think it isenius but then oh Less Crime For Bonnie god redemption for an unsavory character and illness and death and forgiveness TOO LATE and murder and then THE WORST ENDING OF ALL TIMEseriously stonehenge you can t think of a subtler location than that for your situation oh hardy you failed me thereand the ending is what ruins the book for me at the end of the day because i amoing through this bit by bit now in writing this review and that is pretty much my biggest Twelve Moons gripe tess as a character is fine she wouldn t be my favorite in all of literature but she makes sense as someone in her position she s no bathsheba everdene who is obviously hardy s most interesting and complicated female character but she means well and she is definitely a survivor but of the limping variety than the warrior kindand the series of misfortunes is also fine unlikely and depressing but fine nowhere near as perfectly intricate as mayor with its amaaaazing resolution but it is tidy and appropriate all toldyup now that i have actually sat down with this it is simply the presence of stonehenge that sorates upon me fuck stonehenge and your sacrificial maidens it clangs as an ending it is like someone letting loose a wombat during a funeral thomas hardy isn t supposed to be silly and this ending it unarguably silly so there it is mes amis tess redeemed through the power of review writingbut no amount of review writing will ever The Church Reform Of Peter The Great get me to accept stonehenge stupid stonehengecome to my blog I hated this passionately which is perhaps unfair as the book is really uite admirable for tackling the subject of double standards applied to male and female sexual behaviour But this is one of the most depressing pointless novels I ve ever read in my life I have loathed this book for ten years and I will not stop The novel subtitles A pure woman faithfully presented the novel expresses Hardy s rejection of the conventional heroine of the Victorian novel He provoked the cntroversies in that period However coming to the novel it is slightly different than the usual Hardy s fiction The novel is from the perspective of airl and how she comes out of poverty ridden life
