One of the greatest novels of European literature, "Clarissa" is an indisputable masterpiece. Set in 18th-century England. A rich, complex and unique novel written in the form of letters. Richardson delves into the hearts and minds of his characters, their motives and intentions, consequently giving a glimpse of the complex human psyche. A true classic!

Weekly Report

I've finished An Exquisite Corpse and Lessons in Chemistry and should return to one of my paused books: She Devil, Celestial Harmonies, or The Rainbow. Instead I'll probably read more Sandman. And the Clarissa year-long read, of course.

BarbaraBB Of course you are reading Clarissa too! I am still on the fence about joining 2mo

It‘s hard to wait for the mail! Sticking to the plan of reading each letter on the date it was written and anxiously waiting for the second letter on January 13! #clarissa

Lcsmcat It brings back memories of waiting for letters from pen pals when I was young (and the internet didn‘t exist.) 2mo
BarbaraBB I was thinking of your year long read! This one seems a good one (edited) 2mo

Here we go, fingers crossed the gossip will be entertaining as this book will keep me company for a looong time 🤞🏻Intriguing start, I must say.

PS: I cheated and read the next letter as well;)


Lcsmcat 😂 I have a feeling it may get more and more difficult not to “cheat!” 3mo

hilded @Tamra Luckily that‘s a good sign. Keep the juicy gossip coming 😅 2mo
Amiable @Lcsmcat @Tamra I might have to cheat because I‘m bound to forget what happened in the previous letter(s) if the gap between them is more than a day at a time! 😀 2mo
hilded @Amiable Same for me 😆 2mo
Lcsmcat @Amiable @Tamra As long as we‘re careful about spoilers, I think we won‘t risk damnation. 😂 2mo
