From the Back

"At the moment that the train came to a standstill by the Melchester platform a hand was laid on the door and she beheld Jude. He was dressed in the dark suit he wore on Sundays and in the evening after work. Altogether he looked a very handsome young fellow, his ardent affection for her burning in his eyes."
Hardy's daring novel of intellectual aspiration, spirituality and sexuality.

Journal Entry 2 by seldombites at Gracemere, Queensland Australia on Monday, April 4, 2011
Like most books written in the period, Jude the Obscure does have several passages that can be difficult to wade through. However, unlike many such classics, Jude is worth the effort. This book is a bitter-sweet love story set in a time filled with conventions and behavioural expectations that could make life very difficult for those who did not conform. I highly recommend this book.
