Absolutely awful, long-winded and over-elaborate. The novel doesn’t deserve a lengthier review than that.
Evelina was bad enough, but Burney has yet another novel, Camilla, on the 1001 list. If it’s as bad as Cecilia, I’d be more than happy to die before reading it.
Peace to the spirits of my honoured parents, respected be their remains, and immortalized their virtues!
