    HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA No, it is okay, I actually like that novel a lot. I mean yes, the ending was a bit more shocking than I expected-Jude killing himself or Arabella or someone. But I think it makes excellent AP material and I think Hardy tackled a lot of issues in a unique way. I only have two major complaints: WHY THE KIDS? And, the characters are so annoying, obnoxious, and I don’t like any of them-are you (Hardy) trying to be shallow, or is shallow realistic? Probably the latter. The first question I don’t think can be answered in this post.

    And don’t worry about it-I just would not recommend you to read it unless you want to get into issues of Christians ethics and the controversy of marriage in Britain. I also think the book deals a lot with the idea of punishment and redemption. Justice and mercy-a conflict that I enjoy reading about from different authors. Shakespeare, by far, opened that issue the most in King Lear.

    Actually, I would recommend it to some people, but not something as an immediate, die hard read. That is 1984.

    Speaking of 1984, my mom is currently reading it because of how much you talk about it, lol. But she does not like it so far…
