This is a very heart-warming novel. The heroine is one of the most adorable in English literature. The 'Master' is accurately portrayed, with more human qualities than the exemplary Pamela. However, they cry too much, and she represented herself too basely, but it is a very good book that's worth comparing with Hoffmann and Pushkin.

I absolutely adore this novel! There were parts however that did drag on a bit 'like before mentioned' but i was already so captivated by the tale that I wouldn't think to put it down.

I have to give Pamela 4 stars because there are a few parts wherein Richardson repeats a bit and drags things out, but if you love the Victorian novel, this book is a must read!
