• The only English novel which...challenges comparison with War and Peace

    John Carey
  • The best thing he ever wrote - sharp, brilliant, touching, clever and cruel, with an unforgettable heroine

    Joanna Trollope
  • Witty, sexy, sandy-haired Becky Sharp, whose impoverished background explains her hunger for rich men and high position. She is a rebel from the very first chapter of Thackeray's Vanity Fair. Her one final act of kindness derives from her constant virtue: seeing things as they are

    Maggie Gee, Independent
  • A terrific book - bold, funny, scathing and quite unpredictable

    Al Murray
  • Becky Sharp may be one of literature's great schemers, but she's also one of its most memorable and entertaining. More rounded than almost all the simpering Victorian dolls who followed, she alone is worth the read
