Vanity Fair A Novel without a Hero is a novel by English author William Makepeace Thackeray, first published in , satirising society in early th century Britain It follows the lives of two women, Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley, amid their friends and family The novel is now considered a classic, and has inspired several film adaptations In , Vanity Fair was listed aton the BBCs The Big Read poll of the UKs best loved books I don t know how I ended up ordering this but it is not the actual book It reads like a synopsis or revision notes summarising the story Perhaps it is aimed at children Sentences like Dobbin was very sad He could not think about marrying any other girls when he loved Amelia indicate it might be There is no indication that it is not the complete novel anywhere in the product description. I ve been meaning to read this book forever The TV series persuaded me as I hate to see a book badly portrayed on screen I ve just finished the book and I m at episode two of the TV series So far the TV portrayal has done the book justice.To get back to the book Hard going at times, I hated Dickens at school and it s of the same style But the characters are gorgeous and his description of them and their stories is very readable If you can wade through the overwordiness, which though relevant at the time, means very little to the modern reader, this is a very enjoyable romp.Now, where s the TV remote Time for episode three. I recently enjoyed watching ITV s adaptation of Vanity Fair and so thought that it was high time I read the book I m sure that the book s plot is excellent, or it wouldn t have become a classic, still being read after all these years Unfortunately, I didn t get on with Thackeray s writing style which I suppose is very much of the time when it was written I found it rather too busy and quite exhausting to read so had to give up after a short while, which was disappointing Just not my cup of tea, I m afraid.
