Review: Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy

Jude the ObscureJude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Free download available at Project Gutenberg.

This is the last novel written by Thomas Hardy. In this book, the author describes the life of Jude Fawley, a working-class men who dreams of becoming a scholar.

The central themes of the plot are the unhappy marriages, the Christianity values and the social unrest.

Since I have read the main novels written by Thomas Hardy, it is hard to tell each one is my favorite. But I certainly will add Jude the Obscure in my main list of favorite books.

A TV series Jude the Obscure (1971) was made based on this boo, with Robert Powell, Fiona Walker, John Franklyn-Robbins.

A movie Jude (1996) was also made based on this book, with Christopher Eccleston, Kate Winslet, Liam Cunningham.
