The Mayor Casterbridge, Return of the Native, Far From the Madding Crowd, Tess of the Duberilles, Lifes Little Ironies, Jude the Obscure
Such a fan of Thomas Hardy, have always enjoyed his style of writing. Out of the 6 books of his I have read thus far my favourites are Tess of the Durbervilles and the Mayor of Casterbridge. There is always an element of vulnerability in his protagonists and I think that it is this that makes them easy to relate to. Enjoyable books, but not necessarily gripping.
