Vanity Fair (TVTI)

Author(s): William Makepeace Thackeray

Classic Fiction

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.

Product Information

Vanity Fair is about two very different women: Becky, an orphan, and the wealthy Amelia. Rather than a dour, dreary novel, Thackeray has written a light, witty look at these characters which feels quite modern, even though it was written in the 19th century. His way with words will make the 800 pages fly by!
