Mr. B is one of those sexy bad-boys of English novels. (He's no Rochester. Okay, he's not even Mr. Darcy). The character Pamela may strike some readers as sanctimonious, but she's really engaging in class warfare - in her own virtuous way resistiing the upper class's assumption that the lower class cannot possibly care about virtue. As one of the first English novels, it's important in literary history. Some of the minor characters are fascinating, too.
I added this to my Shelf but like CLARISSA (by Richardson, too) much more...but C is a doorstop of a book...Ms Pamela here is just too goody-goody...ah well
