    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.

    "Totally mesmerizing"
    Overall

    I wish I could double my five stars. I loved this book. It has such intense emotions, twisting plot, beautiful portraits of country life 200 years ago (almost) and breath-taking sentences. What amazing writing, where one sentence carries you through several philosophical problems that seem to emerge from a simple country observation. And the reader is amazing, she does so many different accents. This is one of my very favorite books.
