Oxford Bookworms Library: Stage 6: Vanity Fair: 2500 Headwords
by Thackeray, William

When Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley leave school, their feet are set on very different paths. Kind, foolish Amelia returns to her comfortable home and wealthy family, to await a suitable marriage, while Becky must look out for herself, earning her own living in a hard world. But Becky is neither kind nor foolish, and with her quick brain and keen eye for a chance, her fortunes soon rise, while Amelia's fall. Greed, ambition, loyalty, folly, wisdom ...Thackeray's famous novel gives us a witty and satirical picture of English society during the Napoleonic wars.
