First of all I can refer to the pessimistic view of the writer, Hardy and its effect on the reader. When I read this book near one month I was depressed. I was thinking of the bitter destiny/fate of poor, innocent Tess... I'm fond of Hardy's style.I can say it's really a masterpiece. I do recommend you to read it.
