"1001 Bücher, die Sie lesen sollten, bevor das Leben vorbei ist"

Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, commonly known as Fanny Hill, has been shrouded in mystery and controversy since John Cleland completed it in 1749. The Bishop of London called the work 'an open insult upon Religion and good manners' and James Boswell referred to it as 'a most licentious and inflaming book'.The story of a prostitute's rise to respectability, it has been recognized more recently as a unique combination of parody, sensual entertainment and a philosophical concept of sexuality borrowed from French libertine novels.Modern readers will appreciate it not only as an important contribution to revolutionary thought in the Age of Enlightenment, but also as a thoroughly entertaining and important work of erotic fiction, deserving of a place in the history of the English novel beside Richardson, Fielding and Smollett.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:


In den Postbriefkasten Altenbekener Damm vor der Eisdiele eingeworfen.

Das Buch reist per Büchersendung nach Schwäbisch Hall, einer Stadt im Nordosten des Landes Baden-Württemberg, etwa 37 km östlich von Heilbronn und 60 km nordöstlich von Stuttgart. Sie ist Kreissitz und größte Stadt des Landkreises Schwäbisch Hall und bildet ein Mittelzentrum.
Schwäbisch Hall liegt im schroff eingeschnittenen Kochertal an einer alten Salzquelle. Die neueren Stadtteile und eingemeindeten Orte erreichen zu beiden Seiten des Flusses die Hochfläche der Haller Ebene, die von den Höhen des Schwäbisch-Fränkischen Walds umgeben ist. Das Stadtgebiet hat Anteil an den Naturräumen Schwäbisch-Fränkische Waldberge, Kocher-Jagst-Ebenen und Hohenloher-Haller Ebene. (Wikipedia)

Thanks for sending!

Journal Entry 12 by wingdutch-bookwing at Weesp, Noord-Holland Netherlands on Friday, April 29, 2011
Just finished the book. Haven't enjoyed it very much, but I blame that on the time it has been written in, also on the english used. Sometimes I had to reread pages, because I didn't understand. Sentences are very long, and that makes it hard to follow. Hoewever, there were parts I enjoyed. Can't say which parts exactly (I don't mark them). However, I want to state the book wasn't a punishment. I just didn't really enjoy it.
I have brunton11's adress ready and the book will travel further this Monday.

I'm currently reading this well travelled penguin classic which originally started its journey in Paris. It has been on my shelf for over a year so it is high time it was read and moved on.
