Stick with it, it's worth it!, 30 Aug. 2006
This copy is the abridged version but it is well worth reading the full text - if you don't enjoy it at least you can feel proud that you've read a book bigger than 'War and Peace'! I found the correspondence between Anna and Clarissa amazing, Anna is such a modern girl. 'Clarissa' tells the age old story of a woman who thinks she can tame a bad boy. The scene describing Anna by Clarissa's coffin is very moving and worth sticking with the novel for.
