The hilarious story of Fanny Hill and her erotic exploits in London shocked religious and literary hierarchy, who condemned the book, thus immediately increasing demand for it. The story chronicles the life of an 18th-Century maiden who, left without parents, journeys to the big city to try life on her own. Despite its highly charged erotic content and vehement criticism from the Bishop of London in 1749 as an open insult upon religion and good manners, this romp through societies high and low contains not a single obscene word.

    " Another book that I had to read for my Rise of the Novel class. Pre.recs. - Pamela and Joseph Andrews. After the first couple sex passages, it gets boring. And it gets farther and farther away from a realistic woman's mind. At first I though well this guy can write from a female perspective. And then let the penis worship begin. The more and more sex is described the more and more it becomes a glorification of male dominance. After all never once is she physically on top. The best part about the book for sure is the language Cleland uses to speak of these sexual encounters. Many a time I had to re-read passages cause I didn't know what was going where. The best reason to read this book, I believe, is simply to read a novel that although published in the 18th century wasn't legal until the 1960's ad 1970's. Oh and another note. Lady Chatterley's Lover (D.H Lawrence) was embarrassing, whereas Fanny Hill was so ridiculous that it was remotely enjoyable. If that at all makes sense. "

    " 18th-century erotica for the masses. Or, as a review on the back of the book says, "Fanny's Memoirs combine literary grace with a disarming enthusiasm for an activity which is, after all, only human. What is more, she never uses a dirty word." "
