4.0 étoiles sur 5 Understanding Pamela 16 août 2012
Par Emerald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
PAMELA may seem like a boring read to those of us in 21st Century, but one must remember that it was written in the late 1700's in England. It was the first book ever reprinted in the US and done so by Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia, giving it more historic value. In reading about Franklin one learns how he enjoyed printing this book because he felt the content was risque, which I am sure it was for that period. So while this may seem like the equivalent of sexual abuse in the workplace, which would be handled quite promptly by any woman today, one must wonder how a 15 year old child felt over 200 years ago. This book was quite provocative for its time and if the above is kept in mind it becomes a more interesting read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable and historic classic literature 25 juillet 2013
Par H. Temple - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Pamela was a bestseller in the 18th century and is still considered a classic today. Pamela is written in the Epistolary style (story presented in a series of letters), and this style of writing was very popular in the 18th century. Epistolary style is still used by modern authors. The virtuousness of Pamela was a common and important theme was considered exciting and innocent when it was written. This novel offers modern readers a window into the past and that makes it invaluable to historians, readers and writers.

I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in or curious about classic literature. You may find you prefer classic literature to the vulgar blood and guts novels which are being spewed out by modern authors. Readers are treated to profanity free book in which the language is innocent and virtue really is a treasure to the characters.

It is a shame that the other reviewers slammed this classic read, but if you look at the other books reviewed by those reviewers, you can see the other books they have read and rate highly are in an entirely different genre. They are comparing apples to oranges. Don't let the naysayers fool you. This is a great book and discerning readers appreciate its style and substance.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Salacious Cat and Mouse Tale--Revisited 21 mars 2013
Par avidreader - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am writing this a few months after having read the ENTIRE book and must now give the book a higher rating overall. Once you get past the convoluted manner of writing and speech, this book is actually quite DELIGHTFUL and is a valuable artifact. The manner of speech, clothing, social mores are nicely illustrated in the prose, as well as male-female relationships, brother-sister, wife/sister-in-law...some things are quite different from today and others show that human nature is the same regardless of time periods, country, culture etc. Since I was not under any time or classroom pressure to finish the book, I actually found it to be a bit of a treasure and certainly more than I was lead to believe. I now understand why it is considered a "classic". I would recommend to someone who enjoys: Dickens, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy...anyone who enjoys long books, that expound on human nature in detail will truly enjoy this book.

I am reading this book to help a friend of mine out and out of curiosity. What's that expression "Curiosity killed the..."; in this case almost bored to sleep...just kidding (guess i'm just exhausted).
Anyhow the prose is rather convoluted which I suppose is a mirror of the language used at the time. The story is written in the form of letters to the young teen's parents in the spoken voice so sometimes have to reread as she is quoting what is being said to her and this is unclear on first reading.
What keeps the reader going is whether or not she will eventually fall victim to the "wiles" of the perverse "master" (olden 50 shades of...ho hum) as well as wondering about the sincerity of someone who clearly is uncomfortable but sticking around for the "ride"...as this story is written over 200 years ago the social norms and customs as well as religious beliefs and "ahem" laws regarding sex with a minor all dovetail to leave a modern reader astounded, incredulous, scoffing and just shaking one's head.
However, having said all that I will get past the first 5% of the book and report back (hopefully) on whether it was worth spending my only reading time (just before bedtime and after solving NYTimes puzzles) on this soft porn tale.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pamela's Moral Strength Changes her Society 16 novembre 2014
Par J. Kemp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Pamela is a strong woman, kind to all but steadfast in her principles. Though she is a poor teen, at the bottom of the British class system, she struggles valiantly and successfully against any violation of her person. She is humble, not arrogant, intelligent and kind to all.
This novel was written during the Enlightenment period, in the 1700s. There is little in the way of a criminal justice system, so conscience and social pressure were the main restraints agains bad behavior. And of course the Master of the land did pretty much as he chose. In fact he was quite a rake. He wanted Pamela, and because of her low degree, he thought it made sense to take her by force. In his defense, I must say that if he had really wanted to rape Pamela, he could have. Still he behaved dreadfully toward her.
Over a long time, he kept her confined hoping to wear her down. Eventually, he comes to understand what suffering he has put her through, he reforms, and Pamela comes to love him. And they marry.
Now we see why he did not think of this in the beginning. Everybody in the upper classes, and other classes too, was scandalized.
But Pamela's goodness and intelligence win them over. Then she and her husband start making changes that will make life better for the people under his authority.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Virtue Indeed!! 11 septembre 2013
Par Molly D - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I read this as it is said to be among the 1st of novels ever written. As such, it is quite amazing, deserving a place in literary history & to be read by aficionados of such material. A good read - this is questionable. Readable - yes. Enjoyable - to a degree if only for its, today, laughable morals. Indeed I find it unbelievable that marriage was the reward - its a sombre hoot!! Enjoy it for what it is - an old story of values of a yester year, an unlikely heroine & one of our earliest (if not 1st) novels.
