BEWARE - NOT AS ADVERTISED
on 22 October 2015
Be aware that this is NOT the Penguin edition by Angus Ross - it appears to be some knock-off facsimile of an old out of print edition. It has spelling errors, is missing a lot of the important features of the text (italics etc.), has no notes, and worst of all appears to be only half the book (at 800ish pages). Given that Richardson revised the novel extensively in his lifetime (most people agree for the worse - the Penguin edition is based on the first published version) you'll want to make sure you know which version you're reading - this gives no indication.
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a proper edition of Clarissa available on Amazon at the moment, so if you want to read this masterpiece (and you should) on your Kindle then your options are to either get one of the free open source editions that are available, wait until Penguin sort their act out or resort to the dubious legality of trying to convert an eBook bought elsewhere (the proper edition is available on Google Play for one - just saying). Whatever you decide don't waste your money on this.
Bit disappointing that Amazon allow this kind of scam false advertising on their platform to be honest.
