About The Book
Samuel Richardson, the son of a joiner, was born at some place not identified in Derbyshire, England, 1689. After serving an apprenticeship to a stationer, he entered a printing office as compositor and corrector of the press. In 1719 Richardson, whose career throughout was that of the industrious apprentice, took up his freedom, and began business as printer and stationer in Salisbury Court, London. Success attended his venture; he soon published a newspaper, and also obtained the printing of the journals of the House of Commons. "Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded," was written as the result of a suggestion by two booksellers that Richardson should compose a volume of familiar letters for illiterate country folk. It was published towards the end of 1740, and its vogue, in an age particularly coarse and robust, was extraordinary. Of the many who ridiculed his performance the most noteworthy was Fielding, who produced what Richardson and his friends regarded as the "lewd and ungenerous engraftment of 'Joseph Andrews.'" The story has many faults, but the portrayal of Pamela herself is accomplished with the success of a master hand. Richardson died July 4, 1761.

The rating I gave has nothing to do with the book content itself, it is due to the fact that the copy of the book I got was defective. I ordered this book on-line on January 19, 2010, and received it a week later. The book was however unreadable. First of all, I noticed at the inside back cover there was a date of January 19, 2010 on it, which made me think that B&N printed this book on the day after I placed the order, which is not a problem by me; however, the real problem is that every page has a few lines that are gibberish. For example, in the middle of a sentence, I would find words such as ehx4bj%ksnbcd8jye, and I have no idea what the real text should be. There are also a lot of words with no space between them. If B&N printed this book, it did really a poor job. I read about 10 pages and became frustrated trying to figure out what the true words should be in lieu of those gibberish codes. I returned it to a B&N store. They were very surprised when I showed them the book. They couldn't tell me what caused it, but were very gracious and apologetic.
