BOOK: Vanity Fair – William Makepeace Thackeray

Brief Synopsis: This is a satire on 19th century society which follows the lives of two friends; the mousey Amelia, and the shrewish Becky. Their lives, loves, disagreements, betrayals and falls from grace.

 Good Points: It’s funny, a good story with lots of twists and turns.

Bad Points: It can be quite confusing to sort all of the characters out in your head (there are so many and a few share the same name).

Good For: A weighty tome full of laughs for classic literature lovers.

Overall: 3/5
