    Set during the time of the Napoleonic Wars, this classic gives a satirical picture of a worldly society. The novel revolves around the exploits of the impoverished but beautiful and devious Becky Sharp.

    Constance says: "A book that was meant to be read aloud!"
    "Terrific perfomance of a timeless classic"

    Would you listen to Vanity Fair again? Why?

    Yes, becuase the quality of Castle's performance is so good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Vanity Fair?

    Far too many to select one. He's very good at building a long story arc that culminates with some type of reconciliation between people who have long been apart or estranged.


    Have you listened to any of John Castle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    10 X better than Downton Abbey


    Any additional comments?

    Of the many audio novels I have listened to, Castle's performance here is one of the most rewarding of all. Thackeray's narrative skill, characterizations, and plotting are at the very highest level. One of the very best.
