Vanity Fair Book Cover

Vanity Fair

Having grown up poor, Becky Sharp is determined to achieve success and climb the social ladder. Clever, self-serving and resourceful, she’s the opposite of her school friend, Amelia, a naïve and romantic girl whose only desire is for her betrothed, the caddish soldier, George. Thackeray’s epic novel follows both women as they make their way in life, and is a satirical look at the greed and corruption of English society during the Napoleonic wars.
