tess of the d'urbervilles (another book club moment)

I just finished reading this & I'm wondering why Jane Austen is the only one with tragedy & happy endings. Have you read this? What are your thoughts?


Masterpiece Theater on PBS is showing this in a two part series. If you missed the first part you can watch it online here

Too many cute posts to leave all the comments I want too, so I will have to do it later, it's late, but I love all of them, and I am glad you are alive....

I've read that book, read it in high school so I don't remember all the details. But it's really depressing. It seems like nothing goes right for that poor girl. I'm with you, no one does it like Jane Austin during that time period.
