What the Critics Say

Fielding is generally agreed to be an innovating master of the highest originality.... He devised what he described as 'comic epics in prose', which are in effect the first modern novels in English.... [Tom Jones] is generally regarded as Fielding's greatest."

A masterpiece

There's so much in Tom Jones it's hard to know where to begin. It's funny, satirical, thoughtful and downright outrageous in parts. The narrator is superb and perfectly suits the material. Well recommended.
