Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars That was the eighteenth century that was, 3 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memoirs Of Fanny Hill A New and Genuine Edition from the Original Text (London, 1749) (Kindle Edition)
This was on a long list of books that I always meant to get round to reading. Just above it on the list was Moll Flanders,which is a good natured romp through the previous century. Whereas Moll pops in and out of bed leaving what goes on there to the readers' imagination Fanny gives the comings and going within her eponymous organ in absolutely explicit detail. It is little wonder that for many years this book was banned as pornography as it would be under almost any system that restricts publication of explicit material. Ultimately the repitition gets rather tedious and in the way of what little plot there is. As an insight into the seedier side of the eighteenth century it sits alongside Boswell's London Journal in contrast to rather more high minded works like that gentleman's Life of Dr Johnson.
