EXCERPT

"For some time George strove to keep the liaison a secret. There was a woman in the case, that he admitted. “And not the first either,” said Ensign Spooney to Ensign Stubble. “That Osborne’s a devil of a fellow. There was a judge’s daughter at Demerara went almost mad about him; then there was that beautiful quadroon girl, Miss Pye, at St. Vincent’s, you know; and since he’s been home, they say he’s a regular Don Giovanni, by Jove.”

Stubble and Spooney thought that to be a “regular Don Giovanni, by Jove” was one of the finest qualities a man could possess, and Osborne’s reputation was prodigious amongst the young men of the regiment. He was famous in field-sports, famous at a song, famous on parade; free with his money, which was bountifully supplied by his father. His coats were better made than any man’s in the regiment, and he had more of them. He was adored by the men. He could drink more than any officer of the whole mess, including old Heavytop, the colonel. He could spar better than Knuckles, the private (who would have been a corporal but for his drunkenness, and who had been in the prize-ring); and was the best batter and bowler, out and out, of the regimental club. He rode his own horse, Greased Lightning, and won the Garrison cup at Quebec races. There were other people besides Amelia who worshipped him."

- Vanity Fair, by William Makepeace Thackeray

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I love Thackeray, his books offer great look at late 18th and 9th century society The physical text is rough; lots of misspelled and auto corrected words but easy to discern the meaning.
I hear a lot about stuffy English writers from the 19th century but Thackeray is different. Every book in his 'complete works' exhibits his sharp wit and keeps the reader interested in a way many modern writers miss the mark. I also like how he will routinely pull away from the story and talk to the reader personally. I have read "Vanity Fair", a long book, 3 times.
He's a great writer and I studied his works in a literature class. Great collection. He and Charlotte Bronte were friends and they reviewed each other's work. This adds a new dimension to WMT.
