Publisher's Summary

Among Jane Austen's favorite novels, and a key work in the rise of Romanticism, Camilla follows the story of three young women, from childhood to young adulthood, and their pursuit of matrimony.

Kind but naive Camilla is in love with Edgar Mandlebert, a handsome and noble young man, but must suffer a series of frequent misunderstandings that threaten their happy union. Intelligent Eugenia, destined to inherit her uncle's great wealth, is plagued with misfortune as she is left disfigured by smallpox and has men court her for financial gain only. Meanwhile their cousin, beautiful but selfish Indiana, never finds a fortune for her good looks. Accompanying them is a cast of memorable characters, such as the rowdy prankster Lionel, the dim-witted Mr. Dubster, and the scornful Miss Margland.

Perfection!

I love Camilla! I've read it a few times. Yes, it's long, but it's a lovely story and I don't want it to end. Fanny Burney creates memorable characters, a beautiful picture of British country life, and is funny as hell. The narration adds so much to it! Especially the scene with the inept actors who all have different accents- I could not stop laughing. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a great historic novel.

Tedious in the extreme

Ok, we all like a little drama, a little contrary obstacle to overcome in a tale of thwarted romance, but these characters are just plain and simply, infuriating. At what point do they actually “grow a pair”? To use a rather vulgar euphemism. Add to that, the frustration with the narrator who seems to run on in a mindless dash at times and it’s made the whole experience one of annoyance. No... I love 17-18th century writings, but this one is just not worth the effort and frustration.
