Book 5:

This is a very fast moving, action packed set of chapters. Mrs. Yeobright, Wildeve and Eustacia all die at the forces of nature. All the character's death are centered around decision making, miscommunications and passion.

I enjoyed this section too. I think that the heath and its harsh weather and nature is being paralleled to the relationships of the characters.

These chapters were the most enjoyable.

Kelley and I had a good conversation about the times that these people lived in. Most of the people got their homes inherited to them and they didn't have to work that much. They were use to being self-sufficient and didn't need that much money. They didn't need much credit either. If they didn't have the money, they didn't purchase it. Life was easier, rather less complicated than it is now.

Eustacia was such a woman of leisure, described in the second section of the book that she seemed 'idle, lazy and good for nothing' by the common folk. rmember when Clym asked her if she was up to holding the rope when lowering the bucket into the well, or if should get other help? How boring it would have been to be her. It is difficult to understand why clym still cares for her after findig out about his mothers visits and eustacias day time visitor.
I didn't think eustacia took her own life. she had her way out with Damons money. It was an accident. It is too bad that clym is so self blaming and can't seem to get on track without her.

He was pittiful in the end. There was, I'm sure, other fish in the sea.
