Avis de l'équipe
Scandalous when it came out in 1748 after being written from prison by John Cleland, Fanny Hill was almost immediately banned for obscenity, and was only available "underground" for centuries before finally being published legitimately in 1963. It still titillates even today.
The highly charged, erotic novel is told as a series of letters from prostitute Fanny Hill, that describe her vivid sexual encounters in and around London. The 350 years after its publication has done nothing to damper the steamy heat this arousing drama generates. Narrated elegantly with subtle sensuality by Emma Fielding.
Fanny Hill, one of the most popular novels of the 18th century, traces the rise of its heroine from prostitution to middle-class respectability. Condemned in its own time on grounds of indecency, the book was the subject of several law suits until as recently as the 1960s. For today's listener, the work holds as much fascination as when it was first published, not only as the foremost example of English erotic fiction, but as a literary classic in its own right.

A classic, and still exciting
This classic of erotica is still as exciting a read as ever. The tale of women working in a high class victorian bordello, the characters tells tales of varied sexual adventures. Told in the first person, the heroine is a good narator, and her own story is both titilating and sophisiticated. Contains storys that include mild S&M, deflowering virgins and an outdoor orgy.

An intriguing Story
An incredibly fascinating story of a young innocent woman, Fanny Hill, making her way to London after the death of her parents. She falls in love with Charles and through a twist of fate ends up losing him. From then on, she is taken advantage of, and after a brief period of distress, Fanny finds herself taking to her new-found role as a purchased mistress in order to make ends meet and discovers the power of her sexuality.
I believe this book would be considered as the fifty shades of grey of the past.
It is worth a read or a listen!!!!

Victorian so it is not as hot and rough as I would prefer but it is still steamy enough for me to listen many times over. Great bdsm and punishments along with good sex scenes.
