Oxford World’s Classics Book Club: Tess of The D’Urbervilles


Rebecca OUP-US

I’m emotional. I sob in movies. Even bad movies like Boiler Room. Remember that one? It came out in like 1999 or 2000 and starred Giovanni Ribisi. There was a scene in which Ribisi’s character has an emotional break down in front of his father while reminiscing about a childhood biking accident. I sobbed like a baby and I didn’t even like the movie! So you can just imagine my reaction to the end of Tess of The D’Urbervilles. I’m still recovering. I don’t want to ruin the ending if you haven’t finished yet but get a box of tissues; you are going to need them. If you have finished, let me know what you think?
