What a brilliant novel!

What a pleasure to read!

In short, this is a very readable novel full of vitality and reflection. It is a scathing look at 19th Northern European, especially English, society. The novel ultimately gave me the sense that one should just throw a match on the lot of them and walk away with a good conscience.

I absolutely loved the character of Rebecca Sharp - a woman full of brains, determination, and "hutspa." She was no better than the rest, but at least she had a pulse and understood what it was to enjoy life. I consider her the ultimate hero of the book because it is she that finally gets Amelia and Dobbin together. And, of course, she survives and quite well I might add.

Very enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone!

"Ah! Vanitas Vantatium! Which of us is happy in this world? Which of us had his desire? Or, having it is satisfied?"

BRILLIANT!
