Overview

Richly descriptive, gloriously high-spirited, epic, comic, tragic, and still amazingly lifelike after 200 years, Tom Jonesis one of the marvels of literature.

Set in mid-18th century England, the story focuses on young Tom himself: pure-hearted and warm-blooded, parentage unknown and future uncertain. As he travels life's highway in search of fame and fortune, he comes face-to-face with virtue and vice; before he achieves his destiny, he suffers all the outrages of comic misfortune.

In this audio recording you'll meet the kindly Squire Allworthy, the malevolent Blifil, the beautiful and virtuous Sophia, the bawdy Molly and the seductive Mrs. Waters. As they pursue each other from one part of the country to another, Tom Joneswill entertain and delight you every step of the way.

What People are Saying About This

George Sherburn

Not the serious moral intention of the author, nor even the superb fusion of all elements, can fully account for the pleasure intelligent readers have found for two hundred years in reading Tom Jones. One must recognize as a supreme aid to the success of the book the fact that it is composed with confident directness and precision, and especially that it is written in healthy high spirits—that Fielding keenly enjoyed writing it.

Edward Gibbon

The successors of Charles the Fifth may disdain their brethren of England; but the romance of Tom Jones, that exquisite picture of human manners, will outlive the palace of the Escurial and the imperial eagle of the house of Austria.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Upon my word, I think Tom Jones is one of the most perfect plots ever planned.

I've read the Level 6 adaptation of this novel, so it probably hardly compares to the 'real' deal, but nevertheless¿ An enjoyable read which gives some insights of the life in England in the 18th century. I sometimes had the feeling that this was more intended as a play (something Fielding also wrote) than as a novel, especially in the way that the various characters sometimes pop up in different situations...
