5/5 stars ★★★★★
I had been impatiently waiting to read this novel for ages. Ever since I was sitting at a lecture and misheard the professor, thinking he said that Hardy wrote a book called ‘Tess of the Devils’. The real title differed slightly than the impassioned ‘Tess of the Devils’ but nonetheless, my heart still gave a leap when I saw this book at a charity shop for just €3, so I just bought it without thinking about it.
While Hardy did not actually include any hellish references in his title, the devil was everywhere Tess ventured. Her life is made up of a whirlwind tossing her from one unlucky event to another, quickly smothering any hints of hope and happiness which might find their way in poor Tess’s life. Those who want a cozy, happy ending, just be warned that you are going to be quite disappointed.
