Words of a Bibliophile

"It's only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away." —Bee Gees

Vanity Fair - William Makepeace Thackeray This book was witty, snarky and funny, but some parts really dragged on too long. During the course of the story I repeatedly considered the question whether or not Rebecca has a heart. In the end I conclude that she has, only she doesn't let it show or she is too accustomed to not using it. Nevertheless, for "a novel without a hero", I'm glad the good characters get a good ending although it may have taken some 800 pages for it to happen.
