- A Novel without a Hero
- By: William Makepeace Thackeray
- Narrated by: Georgina Sutton
- Length: 32 hrs and 18 mins
Vanity Fair, with its rich cast of characters, takes place on the snakes-and-ladders board of life. Amelia Sedley, daughter of a wealthy merchant, has a loving mother to supervise her courtship. Becky Sharp, an orphan, has to use her wit, charm, and resourcefulness to escape from her destiny as a governess. This she does ruthlessly, musing: "I think I could become a good woman, if I had £5,000 a year."
OUTSTANDIN!!!! EVERY MOMENT A JOY TO LISTEN TO!

I loved the performance by Georgina Sutton! She played the various characters in the book, both female and male, in such a way that their voices expressed their character and the humour and circumstances of the story admirably. Or, in other words, I had a lot of fun listening to this classic :)
