One of the first and almost the best. This book features humor, pathos, heart, excitement and realism in the complete study of human nature that it portrays. Much of the thread apparently based on real life incidents in Goldsmith's colorful, bumpy life. This is the kind of book you sob upon finishing, it's goodness floods you. If you have to read just three 18th century novel, choose this one, The History of Sir Charles Grandison and Camilla.
