Excerpt from the Preface: "The following History is given in a series of letters, written Principally in a double yet separate correspondence; between two young ladies of virtue and honor, bearing an inviolable friendship for each other, and writing not merely for amusement, but upon the most interesting subjects; in which every private family, more or less, may find itself concerned; and, between two gentlemen of free lives; one of them glorying in his talents for stratagem and invention, and communicating to the other, in confidence, all the secret purposes of an intriguing head and resolute heart."

After coming across a reference to this series in a history book, I was motivated to download the first volume. I was curious to see what attracted a mass of readers to this story, told entirely in correspondence, at first letters in the open, later in secret. Well, I am hooked: the language is quaint and the scandalous intentions masked by 18th Century propriety of phrase, but all the same, it is a rousing tale of a good girl (Clarissa) done wrong by her grasping father and older brother, aided and abetted by crusty bachelor uncles and her overly passive mother. Thankfully, Clarissa has her good friend, Nancy Howe, to carry on her secret correspondence. Nancy is as saucy as Clarissa is meek, making a great contrast.

Time and events move at an agonizingly slow pace, but there are quotable phrases throughout (e.g. an angry uncle's fuming about women "Such gnat strainers and camel-swallowers all, as Holy Writ has it." or Miss Howe, "Too ready forgiveness does but encourage offenses.") I am well into the second volume and look forward to plowing slowly through the whole series. You will doubtless wish to consult your reader's dictionary for the many literary and obsolete terms: adjure, purlieus and especially, prepossession. Enjoy!

Had to read this for a college class. Keep in mind this was written in 17th Century England where there was an order of hierarchy, women were EXPECTED to act a certain way, men were hypocritical in how they should act, and details were matter of fact rather than light, airy, and creative as they do appear in the 18th Century.

This book is about a young girl whose family is trying to force her to marry a man she despises. I like the characters and the writing style, but it kind of drags on. There are like nine volumes, and if nothing else happens I definitely will not be able to take eight more books of the family arguing back and forth and coercing this poor girl.

Keeping the subject in focus while traversing thosellooooonnnge sentences is just miserable.

Clarissa's good and Lovelace is evil, but what complexities of human nature this novel delves into. I read this version in conjunction with a hardbound copy. There were a few typographical errors here and there, but the ebook is very faithful to the printed page, and the print on the screen was "friendlier" than my hardbound. I've only read a little of the Eighteenth Century, but for its depth and making a reader what to know what will happen next, Clarissa is a rewarding experience, far more rewarding than many other, later novels written in English.

I love "Fanny Hill," so I though I would read something by Richardson, whose novel "Pamela" it is said to be a parody of. Pamela wasn't available on Amazon, but Clarissa had been converted to a free e-book by Project Gutenberg. I downloaded the first book of the novel, and I am glad I didn't purchase the whole thing. I enjoyed the style of the work, especially the letters written by Lovelace. However, by today's standards it is extremely slow moving. Even Richardson says in the introduction that his main objective is to teach a moral lesson rather than to entertain. Not recommended for light reading.

An excellent read that gives good insight into a world long gone.

The writing is very well done, the drama very thoughtful, and impressive way put together with letters. However, the main body of the drama and arguments draw much over and over and sometimes overwhelming.
