    I just finished reading Tess of the d'Urbervilles. I found it compelling. It's one of the few books I've stayed up until the wee hours of the night to read. 

    I wonder did you use the words "wee hours" and "compelling" before Tess? Just a thought...
    Not that there's anything wrong with that of course. Thomas Hardy is like a long warm bath.

    Now that you mention it, I'd say I don't use those terms very often.

    Return of the Native is a good novel until the final chapter. Just avoid using the word "wee" with warm bath.

    My mistake.

    Thomas Hardy -- "a long warm bath?"  I couldn't agree more.  Don't know how many times I drifted off to sleep in college trying to read one of his assigned novels.  I just know there are subtleties I must have been missing, because people I respect really like him.  I guess I lack the "appreciation of Hardy" gene.  (sigh)

    I know... personally I couldn't stand Tess herself. And even though that was forty years or so ago I'm still not tempted for a new go from an other angle...as it were.
