Title: Vanity Fair
Author: William Makepeace Thackery
Genre: Classics/Historical Fiction
Publication Date: July 1847
“A novel that chronicles the lives of two women who could not be more different: Becky Sharp, an orphan whose only resources are her vast ambitions, her native wit, and her loose morals; and her schoolmate Amelia Sedley, a typically naive Victorian heroine, the pampered daughter of a wealthy family.”
I’m not going to lie, this one wasn’t for me. Historical fiction, and even classics, are genres that are definitely more miss than hit. This one was just super long and a majority of the time I was getting bored.
The only character that really stuck out to me was the Captain because he was an oddball, haha. Other than that, they were just uninteresting to me. It might have been because I tried listening to this and maybe I just wasn’t understanding it all correctly, I don’t know.
Maybe one day I will go back to this one and actually read a physical copy but that won’t be for awhile.
Overall, it was just okay. I can’t really tell you much about it because it just wasn’t interesting, ha.
