A joyfully picaresque novel, Tom Jones is satirical and farcical in large doses, as well as confronting serious issues, such as the importance of religion in 18th-century society.

Tom is thrown out of his foster father's house for crimes that he didn't commit, and proceeds to have numerous bawdy adventures and fights, eventually finding that only his true love can save him from a life that could possibly end at the gallows. Download and start listening now!

    " Comedic handling of the drama in our lives "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ted | 2/11/2014

    " Brilliant! I love relating to characters such as Tom "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lloyd Scott | 2/9/2014

    " I bought this in paperback and it was over 700 pp! I never thought this novel would end. At times it dragged on and on and I grew impatient as I tried to finish it, but as I had patience I continued to read it and I enjoyed mr. jones' crazy world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/5/2014

    " Wasn't too impressed with this. I understand it is a classic and it probably gives a great deal of insight into the times but I had a hard time with all the commentary. Took awhile to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 1/26/2014

    " Like pretty much every book from this era, I found the writing a little dry and crude. Fielding, like his peers, sort of emphasizes social/class manners and analysis, at the expense of psychology and action. Toward the end of the book the author's diversions increase and take away from the story. Nonetheless, this is one of the best 18-cent books I've read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob Roy | 1/21/2014

    " Racy in its day, but pretty benign now. Nonetheless an good romp "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/14/2014

    " A good, if long, read. Funny and great insights into human nature. It isn't just about the 18th century! Tom is forgiven so many peccadillos because of his good looks and charms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette | 1/10/2014

    " said to be "the first english novel" -- an 18th century romp. Very funny. I like the little chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mashi | 1/2/2014

    " IActually,I love Fielding's Works.Tome Jones is one of his bests.The structure was firm & professionally designed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter | 12/30/2013

    " I had to give up I couldn't make it to the end. I am still reading it very slowly! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ultimecia | 12/14/2013

    " The history of Tom Jones is a very important book for two reasons. First it was the beginner of the modern novel, and second it's one of the funniest books ever written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 erik d aker | 12/2/2013

    " This book is pretty good but it could really use more sex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 pjr8888 | 11/26/2013

    " my copy: Sixth Printing, 1964 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 9/6/2013

    " I loved this. remember my Dad said it had great food scenes and I actually remember the book as a feast of the senses. Also remember Tom as a loveable underdog. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chalyce | 1/2/2013

    " I found this book among my grandmother's collection and found it to be a witty and amusing read. Beware though that it is written in 18th century English and I have recommended it to others that did not find it to be quite as interesting and amusing as I did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 12/25/2012

    " One of my favourite reads EVER! Hilarious!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ahmad Alkhalifa | 12/14/2012

    " It was quite interesting, but the ending was most fascinating I must admit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Root | 11/24/2012

    " If readers can get past the archaic language, they will encounter a fun, hilarious, and engaging romp through Fielding's England. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 8/2/2012

    " The lion of the picaresque. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 4/17/2012

    " I did not think I was going to like this book at all, imagine my surprise when I was laughing outloud! Tom Jones is crazy!~ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clmorgan1992 | 2/24/2012

    " Although it was really long, the story in parts was really good, but the main female character was getting on my nerves, as she seemed to try to show how the 'typical woman' seemed work! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 D. | 1/25/2012

    " This is a fun book, although sometimes drags a bit. I'm giving four stars instead of five mainly because this edition was poor quality and the pages started falling out on the first read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 11/8/2011

    " One of my favorite things about this book is the author/reader interaction. Henry Fielding is right there with you, giving his commentary on the situations. It is a wonderfully funny book. I love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaylee | 6/30/2011

    " Skipped the first chapter of every book after a while, and the debates between Square and Thwackham. Plenty of brawls, and chases, and scandal, and humor to keep the story interesting for all 900 pages, but not gripping. It was very easy to put the book down, even in the middle of a page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry | 5/14/2011

    " Most appearing on top ten lists of books of all time. Ok, a slow 150 pages halfway through with a bad parody of war that doesn't play as such -- but still, perhaps the gr8est novel ever written. I've read it almost 20 times, and plan to read it again.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 4/29/2011

    " Racy in its day, but pretty benign now. Nonetheless an good romp "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 4/6/2011

    " I think I can best describe this book as a roguish, tongue-in-cheek romp through an extremely satirical depiction of 18th century England. I'm a fan. Fielding is always a nice antidote to some of his duller contemporaries. *cough*Samuel Richardson*cough* "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 4/3/2011

    " That scoundrel! So adorable. He was the kind of fellow women want to tame. I totally enjoyed this romp. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 3/26/2011

    " Hilariously absurd at times, the journey of Tom Jones is a great, entertaining read with an intricately planned plot that weaves the characters together. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chloe | 1/28/2011

    " UGH! I'm glad that it was the "first novel", but I'm glad that novels have improved. Funny at times, but really, really dry at others. Still worth a read, though, for "understanding literary history" purposes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joseph | 1/26/2011

    " PLEASE GOT LET IT END "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie | 1/10/2011

    " It can be hard to start, but it's really very funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 1/3/2011

    " Funny and beautiful. One of my favorite books. I know that people find it long, but once you get used to Fielding's 18th C way of writing, the sentences fly. "
