Tess of the d'Urbervilles - Thomas Hardy, Tim Dolin, Margaret R. Higonnet

This is another case of all beauty, no brains…Oh, Tess WTH?!?!

Is this really what was considered to be a strong woman then.WOW!…I’m sorry but in my opinion being prideful and mindless is not the same as having strength….She was a walking, talking, non-thinking tragedy.

Then this so called Loving Husband of hers, Angel put her on a pedestal and then kick it from underneath her.(This man changed his persona so fast and viciously, I was taken aback)...Another simpleton

Although, I hated how Alec got "acquainted" with Tess in the beginning, he was the best character in this ever- so –long tragic story. He allowed Tess to be Tess, he made fun of her, but he did not try to change her. After he was redeemed, a fat platter of injustice was served to him, but it was all for LOVE.

Good story, but what a sad and pethetic ending....
