    Good Triumphs

    A delightful tale of the calamities that beset an 18th century English vicar. The story is fast moving and told with wit and humor. The language is archaic but this adds to the charm of the story rather than being an annoyance.

    The sample is seriously lacking

    Full disclosure: I have not yet read "The Vicar of Wakefield." I wanted to sample it before deciding to read it, so I took advantage of the Nook's free sample option to see if this might interest me. Barnes and Noble editions almost always have an introduction from an academic on the significance of the work to be presented. In the case of this novel, the introduction took up the entire sample, and like many of the Barnes and Noble introductions, contained many "plot spoilers" that defeated the purpose of reading the book in the first place. I strongly recommend that B & N make the introductions more along the lines of afterwords and let the sample be a sample of the novel and not some Ivory Tower lecture.

    Mediocre at it Mediocre at the intersection of boring avenue

    No gun scenes very cliche and poor vocabulary misused the word "it" "their" and "butt"- my 4 year old wyniquewah knows better than that- DONT READ UNLESS YOULL DIE IN AN ULTIMATUM WHEN THEY FORCE YOU TO READ IT

    Okay

    It was a good short read. This copy didn't have that many errors that are found in free copies.

    Humorous and Sad...

    'The Vicar of Wakefield' is a Humourous, but Sad book. This is the tale of an 18th century Vicar and his family and the hardships they have to face; the deaths int heir family, the kidnappings, the loss of their small fortune are turned into nearly comical insidents with Oliver Goldsmith's language which turns from sarcastic to serious, from sad to angry. It is a truly delightful book and as I read it when I was eleven years of age I would recommend it to anyone of that age and up, but it depends oin your readoing level.
