  • Throbs with a very Victorian sense of geologies, pre-histories and even astronomy; you can feel the planet moving under the feet

    Daily Telegraph
  • Inimitably brooding style

    The Times
  • Besides my complete identification with its heroine, I loved the sheer relentless power of the writing.

  • Splendid

    Daily Telegraph
  • The Return of the Native is . . . thoughtful, valedictory, poetic, tinged with the somberness of an uncertainty which seems to well up from the depths of the author's own subconscious . . . Hardy's sense of the tragic life of human beings, mere small fragments of consciousness in a vast uncaring universe, comes directly from his own youthful awareness of the place and circumstances described in the novel.
