Ok. I'm really disappointed!
I've been planning to read Tess of the d'Urbervilles
for so long, and depending on the large number of its positive reviews, I expected it to be one of my all time favorites. To be honest
, I loved the first 100 pages of the novel and I really enjoyed them, but then I began to feel a little bored. As I approached the ending I was really messed up with so many feelings mixed together inside of me! Actually, I don't know whether I love or hate this novel! I really don't know!
You know, I think I neither love nor hate this novel! I feel neutral
about it! I loved many things, and hated many things!
its main idea: double standards
! How women were (are) treated when they misbehave, and, on the other hand, how men were (are) treated when they do the same!
And I hated
So, all in all, I think 3 stars are fair enough! Even more than enough, maybe!
(Now, I'm planning to watch the BBC TV Series of the novel - I think I'll like it more than the book!! Well, I hope so
