  •  Scathing reviews are more fun, just as evil parts (2+ / 0-)

    are more fun to act than good ones. But the most thought-provoking books, reviews and characters are the chiaroscuros of light and dark.

    I know most of your complaints are valid - though I find more power than clumsiness in Hardy. But you're only telling half the story. Okay, you suffered aversion therapy at a young age.

    I think you're flat out wrong when you call his prose "Wooden. Stilted. Horrible." - but I'll address these points with examples, when I get around to my Hardy diary.
