      I was going glad when the truth finally came out about Harry I knew he was a piece of dog when Jude first met him and acted like he cared about him when in the end he wanted to do harm to him to save his own In the end, he ended up in jail, aha, karma s definitely a fat mother lol I always say, and my father always says never do harm to someone because something will happen to you, you think you can do bad to others and believe that nothing will happen your definitely wrong The thing with me was [...]

      Jude is a very entertaining book that never had a low point The author speeds up the parts that could ve been very slow and boring and used detail and description in the main parts of the story The author constantly has Jude second guess himself and rethink the past and try to figure things out He s also constantly trying to prove himself but in the end he realizes he doesn t need approval from his mother Overall the book was smartly written and the plot twists were as much of a shock to the rea [...]
