Pamela

by Samuel Richardson

Pamela is an incredibly long novel based on the injustices of the social classes and the value that's held on one's virtue. Pamela starts off as Mr. B's adoring servant, and is a faveorite of Mr.B's mother, who has educated Pamela in all the find and important things in life. However, once Mr.B's mother dies, Mr. B turns his devious designs towards Pamela. He attempts to "ruin" her on many occassions and it challenged by her witty remarks. However, Pamela always remains dutiful to her parents and swears that she has not lost her "precious jewel" (aka her virginity) Throughout the book, they hate eachother and love eachother again. The book is quite long and seems rather radical. Pamela is representing the perfect person. I had to read this book for one of my English courses at school, however, there is another book titled "Shamela" and I forget who did it, but after reading "Pamela" one truely enjoys and appreciate it's wit and humor it makes out of it.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
