There is something about the way in which Thackeray manages to satirse the pretensions of so many members of Vanity Fair which makes this book irresistable to me. Whether is the social climbing Becky, the indian nabob Jos, the pretensious George Osborne, of the various Lords and Ladies and merchants and their wives and children - none are safe for having the vacuity of their aspirations and the shallowness of their relationships with others exposed. A wonderful read.
