3.0 out of 5 stars Out of context it's still funny but references are hard to pinpoint, 23 Nov 2013

This review is from: Fielding: Shamela [Unabridged] [Naxos AudioBooks: NA0139] (Naxos Complete Classics) (Audio CD)
I really think this is best read with a knowledge of Samuel Richardson's Pamela. Having not read the book on which this is based/mocks, I know I miss the point.

Saying that, I did find it funny and was reminded of Dangerous Liaisons, by the letter-writing content.

The section I found hilarious was Parson William's religious instruction to Shamela, wickedly outrageous.

Pamela sounds like a tough prospect. But I'm sure it will put Shamela into better context.
