3.0 out of 5 stars Classic - but .......
I have just downloaded the Kindle edition of this. At less than one pound it MUST be good value (4 full length novels!!) but I am glad I didn't buy a hardcopy book.

Fanny Burney is one of the acclaimed pioneers of the genre "novel" - all praise to her for that. But. I have just finished "Evelena" which is her first and is considered her best. Oh dear, perhaps I...

Fanny Burney is one of the acclaimed pioneers of the genre "novel" - all praise to her for that. But. I have just finished "Evelena" which is her first and is considered her best. Oh dear, perhaps I will like the others better... But I found most of her characters tiresome. I suppose the horseplay and pranks and sheer vulgarity of several minor characters were meant to be humorous. Sorry, I do not find this kind of humiliation amusing. As a text to mine for social mores, the novel has its uses. The sentimental posturing of Evelena and Lord Orville I can just tolerate, but Captain Mirvin and his practical jokes - no. But I suppose it expands my appreciation of the 18th C.
