The design for navigating many chapters and for bookmarking needs revision, it is difficult to know where Titles as opposed to chapters begin, this becomes significant in large works encompassing multiple books

Thomas Hardy brings us an England that once existed but no more. It is rural, traditional, pastoral - a society of mannered conduct that flows like a deep river where powerful currents eddy and swirl. In this powerful novel of love and disillusion, Hardy's heroine is torn between the three men in her life. Passionate but capricious, her romantic involvements have fascinated generations of readers.

Language and literary illusions may be too dense for many readers, but the prose and cameos are excellent
