Macmillan Collector's Library are tiny illegible editionsReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 22 September 2020
While the Macmillan Collector's Library edition of this novel looked nice on the website, it was only once it arrived that I saw it's much smaller than a normal book - it's a physically uncomfortable reading experience and strains my eyes terribly. Don't buy this unless you've got crystal clear vision and small hands.
Returned as covered in dirtReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 22 May 2020
Arrived covered in dirt and dusty handprints, tried to clean off but unable, sent back, got a replacement next day but second book had black spots over cover and around edges. Can't be bothered to send back again. Would be better if sealed in bag like other books I have ordered from Amazon.
Darker than I rememberedReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 20 June 2022
The book is a classic, of course; the speaker (Georgina Sutton) is perfect, and the length of the "chapters" is just right.
Review of audiobookReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 20 June 2017
This review is for the audiobook; not the novel itself which is a classical masterpiece. It is read far too quickly to be able to concentrate on, particularly when I'm driving and as it's a CD, can't go backwards to repeat short sections easily. The author puts on horrible laughable female voices. This is just BAD

As valid today as the day Becky Sharp left Chiswick MallReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 12 August 2021
Hilarious and timeless. Vanity Fair is perhaps Thackeray's masterpiece. A 'novel without a hero'... but with an unforgettable heroine and a cast of gargoyles that would make Dickens envious. Vanity Fair is undoubtedly the predecessor of today's 'reality' television - only a hundred million times more entertaining.
