Recently I rered one book from my youth,
edited in 1749. One of the first and finest
English comic novels.

Tom Jones is a foundling of mysterious
origins discovered in the bed of the wealthy
and benevolent Mr. Allworthy. The book
describes Tom's adventures and love for
Sophia Western.

To a modern audience barely able to
concentrate and read, 900 pages are
abhorrent, that I know, but nevertheless
try at least to prove me wrong.

tom jones is really a masterpice,i think, although it is not given the importance it deserves as a classic.
it is also very enjoyable to see it on tv as tv series of bbc.both the book and the series reflect the humuor of the english perfectly.

Is this book as good as many speak of? I would like to read it as well. Well, since it is one of the first of its kind, I can’t wait to lay my hands on this book. I think I will just buy this, if I can find one of this.
