The History of Tom Jones (Penguin Classics)

Fielding, Henry Author

Image Not Available

A milestone in the history of the English novel, "Tom Jones" draws readers into a world teeming with memorable characters. This epic of everyday life chronicles the adventures of Tom Jones, who was abandoned as an infant and grows into a lusty, imprudent young man. Promising to mend his ways, Tom competes with his abusive rival for the affections of a wealthy squire's daughter, and learns the truth about his identity, in this discerning comedy of human foibles and self-discovery.

Review:

Tom Jones isn't a bad guy, but boys just want to have fun. Nearly two and a half centuries after its publication, the adventures of the rambunctious and randy Tom Jones still makes for great reading. I'm not in the habit of using words like bawdy or rollicking, but if you look them up in the dictionary, you should see a picture of this book.

From the Publisher:

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 trim. 1 facs. Map. LC 83-10633

Book Description Penguin Classics, 1966. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The eponymous hero is first introduced as a baby, discovered in the astonished Mr Allworthy's bed. A charitable gentleman, he adopts Tom, feeling an instant affection for the boy whom the rest of his family condemn as 'born to be hanged'. This panoramic comic novel relates Tom's picaresque adventures, the coincidences and frustrations encountered along the way, and his devotion to the beautiful, apparently unattainable heroine, Sophia Western. Fielding's sharp, sardonic touch has made Tom Jones a much-loved classic. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0140430091
