Jude the Obscure
by Thomas Hardy

Is three times in five years too much for one book?  Maybe.  I found myself less invested this time out.  "But nobody did come, because nobody does" is still the saddest sentence in literature, though.  On this read, I found myself much more aggravated by Sue than I have been in the past.  Figure out what you want, geeze!
