4.0 von 5 Sternen Impressive character portrayals
I've just read this book, not expecting too much, but it was a very positive surprise. I was captured by the story and almost couldn't put it down. The book tells the story of Elfride Swancourt, a young woman brought up in the English countryside, and shows how she falls in and out of love. The strongest points of the book are the credible character portrayals and the...

3.0 von 5 Sternen A pleasant read for Hardy fans (and some who aren't)
Blue Eyes describes the love triangle between a young woman and her two suitors. One is the socially inferior, but upwardly striving young man who adores her and connects her with her country past, while the other is the respectable, established, older man who represents London society.

The strongest points of the book are the credible character portrayals and the wonderful descriptions of the scenery. You will never forget those windy cliffs where Elfride and Henry Knight have their 'key' experience.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A pleasant read for Hardy fans (and some who aren't), 3. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Blue Eyes describes the love triangle between a young woman and her two suitors. One is the socially inferior, but upwardly striving young man who adores her and connects her with her country past, while the other is the respectable, established, older man who represents London society. The heroine is caught between multiple expectations (those of the men, her parents, and society)and the desires of her own heart, which she does not always seem to know. The story is told lightly, however, never burying the reader with a gloomy shroud (until the very end). This is a good read for someone who enjoys Hardy and wants to sample his early works.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Surprisingly compelling, 26. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book was recommended by Amazon.com and I threw it in my shopping cart for fun. I found it surprisingly compelling. I do not remember ever reading Hardy before. His writing is wonderful and not at all old-fashioned, in fact, it is a modern book in sensibility. If you like books that care about characters and place, read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain, 24. April 2000
Von 
I've loved every Hardy book, poem, and short story that I've ever read. He reminds me of our own William Faulkner who surely must have read Hardy because he patterned his style in the same manner (Yoknapatawpha County versus Hardy's Wessex, etc.). The blue-eyed girl, Elfride, reminds me of the main character in a book I'm reading now: Clyde Griffiths in Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy, also a book describing the conflicts of class and love and, since it's set in the US, lust for money. A long suit of Hardy's is his wonderful quotes from the peasants ("I have no use for a flower that neglect won't kill," and "dead, but wouldn't drop down." The other thing I like is his many references which enrich the story and educate the reader. Therefore I look for editions that have explanatory notes. Then too I like to have a pile of reference books on hand to get his fuller meaning: the Bible, Shakespeare, books on English literature, etc. And last, like all Hardy novels, A Pair of Blue Eyes has plenty of sex (if you can read between the lines). Hardy recognized that strongest of all drives beside the basic ones of survival, and despite what he called the Grundyism of the period, he conveyed that truth in his books. Read this book and any other by Hardy. A lifetime of pleasure awaits you. But of course that's just my opinion.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Classic Hardy Melodrama, 26. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I had forgotten Hardy's unique way of making my jaw drop in the last few pages of his novels. If it's been a while since you've treated yourself to his unrelenting destruction of any hope you may be harboring for his characters, indulge. The man never disappoints a cynic.
