5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourites, 24 Jan. 2007
This book is fantastic, a great, long, indulgent read which carries you on a journey around eighteenth century England. Tom Jones, a good-hearted, though misunderstood and spirited foundling is cast out of the home of Squire Allworthy and left to fend for himself in the world. At the same time, his childhood sweetheart runs away from home in order to avoid a marriage to Mr Blifil, Tom's childhood companion and Squire Allworthy's nephew. The story charts the two young people's journey around the country, with plenty of moments of near meetings and reconciliations. Coincidences aplenty and Henry Fielding's dry wit make this novel both satisfying and tremendously funny. Perhaps not for the easily offended since it's pretty bawdy! (In the eighteenth century it was blamed for causing earthquakes in London and Dr Johnson was 'ashamed' to hear that a friend had read it)! Certainly different to most eighteenth century writers, Fielding has produced his masterpiece in Tom Jones. Enjoy.
