    1. Hardy ha vuelto a sorprenderme con una novela corta muy tenebrosa con retazos de fantas a oscura de por medio.Las ilustraciones de Julia Sard simplemente PERFECTAS

    2. Overall a good read First tale was about a woman named Rhoda Brook, who had a secret affair with Farmer Lodge, with whom she bore a son Stricken with jealousy when Farmer Lodge had a new wife, she accidentally cursed the new wife Gertrude through one of her dreams Second tale was about a bunch of thieves and a gentleman named Hubert, and how he outsmarted and caught them Language is old but I thought it fit the narrative of the two tales Length was also perfect, particularly for the first tale, [...]

    4. I really enjoyed these two short stories I ve been meaning to read Hardy for some time and this was a great taster Will definitely check out some of his longer works now.

    5. 3.5 stars.My love for Hardy s novels is well documented, but it had never occurred to me before picking up this collection that he might also have written short stories In fact, when I bought this Little Black Classics edition, I was anticipating poetry But no, I got two short stories Two very un Hardy esque short stories, much to my surprise One plays with supernatural and gothic elements albeit ambiguously and the other has of a medieval setting than his usual oeuvre This was not at all what [...]

    6. A canonical story from victorian times A short and delightful story to pass the time Also comes with the short story The Robbers who couldn t help sneezing For 80p I can t complaint about it it is well written, if a little baroque, as most writers of the time did Perhaps the only thing missing is a little elaboration on the end of the story To leave it at that is a very modern thing, but I do miss a litttle info on what happened after the fact those who read it will know what I m talking about. [...]

    7. To judge this book on modern standards will not work, the writing style is very much of its time and is all the better for it.Two enjoyable tales of the country that are vivid in the way they trigger the mind to see the words.The title story, although as a predictable ending is handled with skill in the hands of such a writer as Hardy.The second story, The Thieves Who Couldn t Help Sneezing is a fun little story that should bring a smile to anyone.More Thomas Hardy please.

    8. Stories steeped in folklore and local storytelling than I am used to from Hardy Read as part of my project to read of his work in 2017 These tales were rather lighthearted and fanciful than his larger Wessex novels On the basis of this, I would be keen to read of Hardy s short fiction.

    9. The Withered Arm 3 Without giving too much away, nothing is what it seems or what we thought Story detailed and draw out for most of story then wrapped up with too much speed at the endThe Thieves Who Couldn t Stop Sneezing 4 charming little tale.

    10. Just read The Thieves Who Couldn t Help Sneezing as I read The Withered Arm in Wessex Tales earlier in the year.

    11. I rather enjoyed this story, even though it was really short it was well written, detailed, and you felt for the characters I always love reading Hardy and this was no exception

    12. El brazo marchito es el primer cuento que leo desde hace tiempo y me ha permitido recordar porqu me gusta tanto este formato Tambi n lo dif cil que es que una editorial apueste por publicar cuentos, o libros de cuentos, aunque los haya infinitamente m s interesantes que ciertas novelas Gracias editorial AstroRey ste cuento en concreto, concentra con pericia la ambientaci n, los sucesos, los personajes y las sensaciones de toda una novela en unas cu ntas p ginas, en las que no sobra ni falta una [...]

    13. This short story follows the life of a young woman who marries a farmer of good fortune and a milkmaid The young wife becomes inflicted with a withered arm as the title presents.The story was surprisingly detailed for being so short Quickly, I became very involved in the character s lives and the ending although predictable was enjoyable However, it was also very abrupt The lead up to the events at the end was very slow paced and then everything seemed to happen at once The ending was hinted at [...]

    14. 1 Oxford level 12 10 07 30 minutes if I stay 60 minutes 3 Rhoda, Gertrude, dream, arm, man, hanging,son4 Rhoda s ex husband married again she wanted to know his new wife but don t want to see her one day, Rhoda had a a little terrible dream about his new wife, Gertrude however they were getting a good relationship Gertrude had a withered arm and it was like the marks of fingers Rhoda found it was because of her dream they knew the truth of her arm and Gertrude wanted to cure for her arm and she [...]

    15. El brazo marchito es uno de los primeros pasos de una joven y prometedora editorial, que apuesta por la narrativa ilustrada apara adultos Solo por eso ya merecer a todo mi respeto, pero es que, adem s, lo hace con una sensibilidad y exquisitez notables Admito sin rubores que no me hab a acercado a una obra de Thomas Hardy hasta ahora, y que ha sido precisamente el formato de libro ilustrado el que ha eliminado esa barrera o, mejor dicho, ha despertado mi inter s La historia merece la pena por si [...]

    16. 1 oxford, stage 12 20 05 2016 10 mins, 25 05 2016 70 mins3 a woman a boy the wife milkmaid farm jealousy the dream4 A woman who works in the farm milkmaid doesn t like the man s new young wife She jealous of her The new wife was in her dreams as a phantom 5 I couldn t read whole this book, but I know this book is interesting The scene which the woman always envy the new wife is understandable because I am a girl.

    17. I racconti di questo piccolo libro vengono considerati gotici , ora la differenza tra racconti gotici e dell orrore mi assolutamente sconosciuta, tendo a pensare dipenda dall epoca in cui sono stati scritti, o magari dall assenza di lupi mannari, licantropi o vampiri, anche se per esempio nel primo potremmo pensare di essere in presenza di stregoneria A parte questo si fanno leggere ma non restano particolarmente impressi.

    18. The Dithered Arm 10 8 90 minutes Farmer, milkmaid, dream, wedding ring, ghost, curse, hangman, You must put the withered arm on the neck of a hanged man Sometimes, I suddenly don t know whether it is real or a dream In a dream, we can see and touch everything It just happens in the dreams, but it may affect the real world, like this story Is it a kind of DeJa Vu

    19. This is the first book I ve read by Thomas Hardy, and I really enjoyed it Far from the Madding Crowd is on my list, and I hope I pick it up soon

    20. Las ilustraciones son preciosas y la historia una delicia estoy deseando leer m s de este autor La edici n de AstroRey est maravillosamente cuidada.

    21. 1.25h Very disappoint Much boring Didn t enjoy the characters, the story was just bland for me, even with that little twist in the end Yeah Not a fan, unfortunately.

    22. I ve always enjoyed Thomas Hardy s writing style and this little short collection does not disappoint He always has a twist up his sleeve and I love the unexpected turns his tales take.
