  • "In a culture obsessed with status, Becky Sharp--beautiful, clever and poor--is determined to earn her place in society. Her childhood friend, Amelia Sedley, enjoys the privileges Becky lacks, little realizing how fickle these blessings can be."@en
  • ""In an England on the brink of bankruptcy and war, only the wily may prosper. Becky Sharp is a governess, temptress and social climber supreme, a woman who more than compensates in brains and beauty for what she conspicuously lacks in breeding. To what lengths will she go in order to secure herself a rich and high-born husband? And how many make hearts will be left broken along the way. We follow Becky's journey from the elegant salons of Georgian London to the battlefields of Waterloo, from her ill-fated attempts to woo the buffoonish Jos Sedley, to her equally doomed marriage to the aristocratic cad Rawdon Crawley. The unsinkable Becky's progress is mirrored by that of her fragile best friend Amelia, who is besotted with the raffish George Osborne, but secretly admired by Osborne's staunch ally William Dobbin. Can both women survive the foibles of love and catastrophic events unfolding in England and abroad?"--Container."

  • "In a culture obsessed with status, Becky Sharp, beautiful, clever and poor, is determined to earn her place in society. While the wickedly amoral Becky manipulates the men around her, the vagaries of fate leave her innocent childhood friend, Amelia Sedley, to the mercy of others."
  • "A woman used her wiles and tramples hearts until she ends up in a marriage that she thinks will be the answer to her prayers."
  • "SUMMARY: "...the story is literally a Fair: characters come and go as the narrator sees fit while we the audience look on with amusement. We start with both Becky Sharp (the main character but not the traditional heroine as Thackeray's contemporary audience would have expected) and Amelia Sedley, and we follow their fortunes and interaction with other characters over some twenty or thirty years. Characters come, characters go; some die, some are born. But nearly always the narrator is there to invite us to feel something towards them: sympathy, repulsion, anger, love." IMDB"
