Vanity Fair - much better than the movie with Reese Witherspoon. Schemeing Becky Sharp is the original women's libber - making her way in a harsh world using her wits against the men who want to use and abuse her - FABULOUS!
Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée. With Reese Witherspoon, Gaby Hoffmann, Laura Dern, Michiel Huisman. A chronicle of one woman's 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.
This is on the to read/ been read mostly because that's how it is. This is a long novel to plow through when you're trying to keep up with the plots of the charming, yet deceptive, female lead. No patience? Check out the movie with Reese Witherspoon, it's wonderful!
