Guess what I'm reading

Posted to What Are You Reading?




I'm reading Tess of the D'urbervilles.

It's very good but depressing. I've read Jude the Obscure and I liked that, and my teacher told me this was her favorite Hardy novel, so that's why I'm reading it.

I'm also reading it because I'm bored out of my mind, and I'm listening to the same song over and over again, and my girlfriend is sick, so I have nothing to do and nowhere to go. I'm thinking I'm going to steal a car and go to Mexico tomorrow, but I'm not sure.

Has anyone else read this book? If so what do you think about it? I don't think there are any articles on Hardy at this site, there should be, the guy knows how to write. But then I haven't really looked at everything on this site in great detail, so I might've missed it.

Anyway, that is my random rant for the day. Thanks for listening if anybody actually reads this.
