Well, you get what you ask for. A few people challenge me to pick a book at the last meeting and when I through out this one a few people actually got a little excited.

Sooooooooooooo,

Going farther back than we ever have.

Jude The Obscure (1895)

The novel has an elaborately structured plot, in which subtle details and accidents lead to the characters' ruin. It also develops many different themes. These include how human loneliness and sexuality can stop a person from trying to fulfill his dreams, how, when free from the trap of marriage, one's dreams will not be fulfilled if one is of a lower status, how the educated classes are often more like sophists than intellectuals, how living a libertine life full of integrity and passion will be condemned as scandalous in traditional society, and how religion is nothing but a mistaken sense that the tragedies that wear down an individual are the result of having sinned against a higher being.

For those of you who arent all about the classics, next months book will be from the past decade.


Oh, and the books is easily found at the Library.


See ya Later.
