    "I'm not a big fan of this book, Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. It may be well known, but it is not his best - I think actually his poetry is better than his prose. I suppose it is fine for what it's supposed to be, but I get frustrated with the characters and it's kind of depressing. It may be meant to be a commentary on the time, but it just leaves me cold."

    "Old timey books can be boring. Tess isn't. I usually read scifi, but the cover of Hardy's book caught my eye and resonated with me for some reason. Because it was available electronically, I purchased and had a read while rocking on my porch as a cool breeze finally broke this uncustomary warm Spring weather we've been having. Maybe it was the weather or the peace, but I was engrossed and finished it in a sitting."

    "Tess of the D'Urbervilles is a story about someone that is looking to claim a portion of their families fortune. I personally found the story line itself to be extremely interesting with plenty of good dialogue and even elements of mystery found throughout the book. "

    "I tried hard to enjoy this book. But truthfully I found it a bit of a bore. The story is somewhat depressing. However, it is well written."

    "I got this for my wife who deeply loves romance novels. She fell in love with this book and I know because I didn't really see her much the entire weekend. After she was done she told me thank you for the great book and she loved every page of it."

    "Sad book, but good overall. It's not some masterpiece that will change you forever, but still a good story. "

    "Although Tess of the D'Urbervilles takes place in the 19th century, it was written in that time period. It was first published in 1992, making it a 20th century novel. It does give great insight as to how far women have come in society and politics, but not written in the 1800's."

    "this book is a classic set in Victorian times and a must read for any book lover "

    "After reading a couple certified customer reviews of this novel, I am not sure if I would read this one. Not because I would not enjoy it, but apparently, this story does not have a happy ending and it may be hard to invest in characters, want to see them end happy together, and have the whole thing end in a tragedy. "

    "Tess of D'Urbervilles is one of the most depressing books I have read in a long time. It is a romance novel written by Thomas Hardy, which revolves around Tess Durbeyfield trying to claim her family fortune. Each page I couldn't stop turning, and I couldn't put it down. Excellent read."

    "Tess is a great book. It gives an accurate and moving account of a time thankfully now gone by. It is not, however, an easy read and it takes some tenacity to get through it. Fantastic to listen to as an audiobook. This link does not offer that option, however. "
