Reviews by Paulderol Surname


by Samuel Richardson

That's because Shamela is a direct commentary on Pamela, by Henry Fielding. What this book lacks in substance it surely makes up for in sheer page weight. A waste, but often required. There are more effective texts for exploring these issues. Oh, and as an aside, whenever a book claims to be "true" and for "moral education" you can wager that what it means is that it is "false" and for "making a buck." Sammy Richardson was a printer, and had need for titlating material to drum up lagging sales, and nothing is more fungible than controversy. Slow, arduous read. Not worth it, and seems to reward The Vice of her master rather than her Virtue. But that's more than i aimed to say, so i'll away.

Author of the Day

L.L. Collins
When L.L. Collins isn't wrangling 25 preteens during her day job as a teacher, she writes heartfelt, emotionally charged romance novels. Books in which the heroes are not always alpha males and the heroines everything but perfect. In her book, Snared, Collins also addresses tough subjects such as mental health and foster care.
