Henry Fielding’s bawdy, colorful, high-spirited novel painted human vices and virtues with unprecedented honesty and good humor, making Tom Jones as fresh and entertaining today as it was when first published nearly three hundred years ago.

A foundling of mysterious parentage, Tom Jones is brought up by the benevolent and wealthy Squire Allworthy as his own son.

As a young man, Tom falls in love with the beautiful and unattainable Sophia Western, a neighbor’s daughter, whose marriage has already been arranged. When Tom’s sexual misadventures around the countryside get him banished, he sets out to make his fortune and find his true identity. Against the vivid background of eighteenth-century London, Tom Jones encounters passion, corruption, danger, and intrigue before finally claiming his fortune, legitimacy, and true love.

Loved the book/novel. Five Stars! Not impressed with the reader. Three stars. Eventually I went to our public library and used "Libby" audiobook service and finished the novel. A much better reader. But, this is unusual. I have almost always enjoyed, and will continue to use their service!

Excellent book. Every little detail comes to play a part at the end.
