       Hardy is worthless??? I can't let a sweeping statement like that pass unremarked!

       It's true that 'Tess' was not one of Hardy's best efforts. It's the tragedy of all tragedies and pretty tough going to complete. Jude the Obscure wan't great, either. But Far From the Madding Crowd and the inestimable literary heights scaled in the Mayor of Casterbridge mean that Hardy cannot be written off so easily. Like you I don't know what this particular book is doing in the list when so many better others of his are absent, but that's the judgement of the majority, I guess and we have to accept it.

       Thomas Hardy is worthless.  If you do have to read a Hardy book (and the Hardy boys is not an option lol) this is the one to read.  I had to read several of them (this, Jude, ect..) for a class I took and I considered dropping out of college to avoid reading another book by Thomas Hardy.  Shame on everyone who voted for this.
