True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

Thomas Hardy no thank you!!! Never again



I have to say if I EVER see the name Thomas Hardy (the novelist) attached to anything - book, miniseries or movie- I will turn around and run... not walk... the other way. 

That man has to have been one of the most morbid and depressed people ever alive to have written the stories he did. I have seen and/or read Tess of the D'urbervilles, The Mayor of Casterbridge (which I finished yesterday) and Jude the Obscure (which was the utter WORST - Do NOT I repeat DO NOT read or watch the movie on this one you will regret it! I'm still scarred by that one!).

Each and every one of them is totally depressing in the extreme and makes me wonder how on earth he got to be such a popular and celebrated author in English literature. At the end of the books (and movies or miniseries that were based on those books) leaves you feeling like what was the author's objective here to make people so depressed by the work that they want to commit suicide or something??? Good grief dude! Little ray of sunshine he sure wasn't!
