For being written in 1886, this book felt surprisingly modern and engrossing. The twists and turns of Henchard's life were enthralling and though many of his actions proved him reprehensible, he was still somehow likable... Farfrae also was an interesting character, though Elizabeth-Jane truly stole the show. All in all, I was surprised at just how much I enjoyed reading this and I will certainly keep an eye out for his other works.
