9780099518938: Vanity Fair (Vintage Classics)

Becky Sharp is a poor orphan when she first makes friends with the lovely Amelia Sedley at Miss Pinkerton's Academy for Young Ladies. She may not have the natural advantages of her companion but she more than makes up for it with her wit, charm, deviousness and determination to make a success of herself whatever the cost. Vanity Fair is the story of Becky's spectacular rise and fall as she gambles, manipulates and seduces her way through high society and the Napoleonic wars.

Review:

"The only English novel which...challenges comparison with War and Peace" (John Carey)

"The best thing he ever wrote - sharp, brilliant, touching, clever and cruel, with an unforgettable heroine" (Joanna Trollope)

"Witty, sexy, sandy-haired Becky Sharp, whose impoverished background explains her hunger for rich men and high position. She is a rebel from the very first chapter of Thackeray's Vanity Fair. Her one final act of kindness derives from her constant virtue: seeing things as they are" (Maggie Gee Independent)

"A terrific book - bold, funny, scathing and quite unpredictable" (Al Murray)

"Becky Sharp may be one of literature's great schemers, but she's also one of its most memorable and entertaining. More rounded than almost all the simpering Victorian dolls who followed, she alone is worth the read" ( The Times)

Book Description:

'I think I could be a good woman if I had five thousand a year' Vanity Fair
