Beğendim ama hikaye acı çekti, çünkü yazar 2011 ile ilişkisi olduğu tarih ve bilgiler arasındaki boşluğu dolduramadı. Laura Hillenbrand gibi birinin elinde bu "en inanılmaz kurtarma görevi" olurdu ve bize hikayede başlığın kendi liyakatine dayanacağını söylemeleri gerekmeyecekti.
What would seem to be a story of a tragic-hero, is actually a tale of the advent of modernity into an fictionalized English agrarian village based on Dorchester, Dorset. With characters representing the past and the present, Hardy illustrates the clashes between the two as modern methods of farming, ideas about trade, and even social mores integrate the rural village where things have remained much the same over time. The resulting book is not only extremely valuable for its story of Michael Henchard's ill-fated decision to sell his wife and the consequences of that decision, but also for the examination of the changes that transformed towns like Casterbridge during the mid 19th century.
