4.0 von 5 Sternen very ironic tales, 6. Mai 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Life's Little Ironies (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I have to be sincere, I downloaded this book because I have a long trip ahead of me and nomoney for a book, so I thought "why not, it is for free" :).

I was positively surprised by this book. It is a collection of short tales, that are very ironic. I know the book was written some years ago, but it still has his charm. I found it very easy to read and didn't need that long to finish it. I think it would be also perfect for somebody that has to take a train or so everymorning to get to work, and could read a story everyday.

The tales are not long and mostly based on love ironies with a tragic end. (Some could also be categorised under funny).

I recomend the purchase of this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An iinteresting piece of Hardy, 18. Mai 2000
As a great admirer of "Jude the Obscure" and "Tess of the D'Ubervilles," I was intrigued when I saw this collection of some of Hardy's shorter works, and was not disapointed. The common theme running through these sketches is Hardy's dissatisfaction with the institution of marriage. Written in Hardy's impeccable style, these stories are short and biting looks at the circumstances that surround and influence marriage. You'll find few happy endings among these tales, but they are an enjoyable read. It's always a pleasure to immerse oneself in Hardy's world and language, and the twisted little plots Hardy creates show a side of his genius I had not previously realized.
These stories are not as profound as some of Hardy's other works, and, by necessity, the characters are not as well developed. However, I would still recommend this book. For a fan of Tess or Jude, it's a fascinating look into the mind of Hardy at the time he was writing these novels. And for someone who's never read any Hardy, they are an easy and enjoyable introduction to a wonderful author.
