Bought this in conjunction with watching the TV series and they were both in line with each other, I had read it years ago, it's a book though risqué in places has a story of rags to riches, to rags and riches, an adult read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fanny Hill 31 May 2008
By Greg - Published on
Published in 1749, this is a fascinating insight into social and sexual mores of the day. It is a highly romanticised account of the life of a courtesan and prostitute. I read the 'dirty bits' as a teenager, and it is interesting to read it in full as an adult. Its plot has parallels with moral novels of the time (such as Richardson's "Pamela", a dreary novel I studied at university). The language is convoluted, with hugely long and complex sentences. It is not a particularly easy read. Interestingly, oral sex and the clitoris do not figure in the sexual practices.

This edition is illustrated, but there is no information on who did the drawings. It would also have been nice to have an introduction to explain the history of the work (which was banned for a long time). Also, the edition has more typos than it should.

Overall, an intersting read, but this edition does have some flaws.
