First published in 1766 and a perennial favourite since then, The Vicar of Wakefield is built around the naive but loveable figure of Dr. Primrose.

    " It's a short novel with a good, concise meaning. It's about a guy who eventually learns that even when the material world is gone it's only family that matters in the end. "

    " This is such a fun and happy book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Spencer | 2/5/2014

    " Quite an adventure for a man of the cloth, he starts out a wealthy man and loses almost everything but always has his family (well, almost always). I'd come across this title a number of times reading various Victorian era novels, including Dickens & Trollope, apparently it was one of the most popular 'classics' when many of today's classics had yet to be written. I expected that, if this book had the kind of influence over Victorian literature I'd seen indicated, it couldn't end on a bad note, and I wasn't entirely wrong - it has a happy ending with a twist that I imagine could have influenced Dickens. "

    " A good, didactic Victorian novel in which virtue is rewarded and vice leads to degradation and premature death. A good read when you're feeling up to simple morality and robust syntax. "
