Joseph Andrews

Joseph AndrewsJoseph Andrews
by Henry Fielding
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read Tom Jones when I was an undergraduate and really liked it so when it came time to assemble my latest Classics Club list I knew wanted to read more of Fielding's work.
Joseph Andrews was originally published in 1742 and is the tale of a young man who gets himself into (and occasionally out of) a variety of ridiculous situations. This was a funny book but I didn't like it as much as I remember liking Tom Jones. This novel counts toward my Back to the Classics challenge as a comic classic and also toward the Mount TBR challenge. I think I have had this book on my shelves for at least 30 years and now it has finally been read.

  1. I read this one back at university, but have to say that I've mostly forgotten it.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
