4.0 étoiles sur 5 Understanding Pamela 16 août 2012
Par Emerald - Publié sur
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

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.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pamela's Moral Strength Changes her Society 16 novembre 2014
Par J. Kemp - Publié sur

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.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 a wordy, redundant ideal 25 juin 2013

VERY long but lovely for is innocent character. I wish modern society made such an association with honesty and sexual virtue. I wish all parents loved their children so well as to rally behind choices of such enormous consequence as did Pamela's! This book however is tedious and one does begin to wonder what the point is.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 SPOILERS: Stockholm syndrome 9 octobre 2014
Par A. Brosius - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Wow! Pamela was the most egregious example of Stockholm syndrome I have ever come across. Her master attempted to rape--not seduce, but rape--her at least three times, abducted her, and kept her a prisoner, but as soon as he showed the least symptom of reformation, Pamela hurried to his side. Yet, it was rather fascinating, if appalling, as a view of seventeenth century life and opinions.
