    Socially critical and emotionally complex, Tess of the d'Urbervilles is Hardy's masterpiece. It tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, forced by her family's poverty to claim kinship with the wealthy d'Urbervilles. Violated by the son, Alec, her hopes of rebuilding her life with the gentle and bookish Angel Clare founder when he learns of her past.

    Overall

    This was the first Audible book that I've ever had trouble with skipping, so the previous reviews are correct. It does has some technical difficulties.

    One more classic down. (this book was written in 1891).

    Tess of the d'Urbervilles was quite modern and open minded in its day! It was well written and well narrated. However, I will never read it again. The pour heroine never catches a break and the story is incredibly depressing throughout.
