Sunday Sentence: Tess of the D'Urbervilles

David @ The Quivering Pen hosts Sunday Sentence.

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I've read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

"And you seem to see numbers of tomorrows just all in a line, the first of them the biggest and clearest, the others getting smaller and smaller as they stand farther away; but they all seem very fierce and cruel and as if they said, "I'm coming! Beware of me! Beware of me!" "

Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy


  1. Beautiful! I made some progress in Tess over the weekend. Have past page 200 and like it much more than I thought I would. I'm mostly listening to the audiobook now.

    1. I hit the half way mark over the weekend and feel like I'm in the flow of the story now :-)

    As you might be able to tell by my blog name, I LOVE Tess! I hope you enjoy the rest!


I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
