Published just months before his death in 1768, A Sentimental Journey is Sterne's lightly fictionalised account of his own European travels. And being Sterne, it is more about digressions, misunderstandings, and risqué jokes than the places he visits. Narrated by the (apparently) innocent Parson Yorick, who appeared in Sterne's other masterpiece, Tristram Shandy, it is full of anecdote and incident, and is far more about the people than the landscapes on the road from Calais. Despite the title, any sentimentality is offset by the elegance of the writing, the engaging companionship of Yorick himself, and the constant, playful surprises.

    " Honestly, if I could rate this lower than a star I would. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hashi | 4/25/2009

    " I really don't think I 'got' it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 11/24/2008

    " I'm happy that this book was so short because I did not like reading it. Perhaps the story was good but the style that it was told in made it so difficult to read and understand what was going on that I got frustrated by it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 5/11/2008

    " This book shouldn't be recommended to people who doesn't like such a old and philosophical stuff that can't be used in now days in any form. This book is boring and realy hard to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 4/14/2008

    " This is not truly a finished novel, as Sterne intended to continue with it for quite some time, much as he had with Tristram Shandy. It was limited to only two volumes on account of his death.

    It's still quite fun, particularly if you've read Tristram Shandy. "
