Part 1 of Books Worth a 2nd Read: Tess of the d’Urbervilles

Advertisements

While on summer vacation about seventeen or eighteen years ago, I read “Tess of the d’Urbervilles” by Thomas Hardy. I remember that it was the only book that ever made me cry. I was pretty cynical even at a young age. So I was surprised that a book would bring me to tears.
I wanted to write about why I liked it. However, I can’t remember. I will be reading it again and sharing the results. Of course, I might not cry the second time.

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.

  1. scoobyclue – An amalgam of eccentricities.. part Scooby Doo, part Jessica Fletcher,  Nancy Drew, and a dash of Wednesday Addams just to spice things up.  I'm a nouveau gypsy, a writer, professional procrastinator,  and at least one dog’s very best friend. I  present to you for your amusement and entertainment my amazing, death-defying, idiotic misadventures. Marvel as I obsess over  Jeffrey Dean Morgan, will he ever know how much I love him?  Gaze in awe as I muck up the simplest tasks, snicker as I go on and on and on about the lameness of my daily life. Entranced yet? Oh you will be..

    I was put off by Thomas Hardy by Return of The Native … we read it in English class and it was one of the few books I loathed. So I cant wait for your review!
