Liked this classic a lot. It is on my BBC100 challenge list. I thought at first it was going to be a great romantic novel, but it turns into a sad depressing novel. While I still liked this book, I was disappointed in the sadness of the novel. I was looking at reviews online about this book and Mark Goacher nails it with this you tube video review on Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy.
I think this is a great classic and worth reading. I like the drive that Jude shows throughout the novel. I listened to this novel read by David Case on audio. Mark in the above video even talks about the films that were made of the book including the 1996 film Jude. I can’t wait to watch this movie and hopefully do a review on the movie part of the book. I’ve always like Kate Winslet and she plays Sue in the movie.
