One of the best books I have read, good value for English GCE. Recommended to 19th century material readers! Unusual for a male writer to write stories from females perspective; usually they write about the male. “ We learn that it is not the rays which bodies absorb, but those which they reject, that give them the colours they are known by; and in the same way people are specialized by their dislikes and antagonisms, whilst their goodwill is looked upon as no attribute at all.” ― Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd It may have been observed that there is no regular path for getting out of love as there is for getting in. Some people look upon marriage as a short cut that way, but it has been known to fail.” ― Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd I shall do one thing in this life-one thing certain-this is, love you, and long of you, and keep wanting you till I die.” ― Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd “Love is a possible strength in an actual weakness.” Far From the Madding Crowd – Thomas Hardy What else can I say? ― Thomas Hardy at his best!
