Thomas Hardy is quite something. He goes on and on describing the settings, characters and events. The choice of his words is just breath-taking: it's unbelievable how someone can use that many words to describe.
As a teacher, I think his books should regularly be used in secondary schools to teach students how to create imagery.
A note of warning, though: Hardy wrote in the 19th century and some of the words he uses should be checked up in a dictionary.
Reading Thomas Hardy reminded me how beautiful English language is.
