Engaging Characters Course Of characters the course of fitful romance takes place over a decade or so mostly in London but also accounts of German spas and French provincial towns Lots of topical references to the times Might have been a better read if a bit less lengthy Given that it is than 900 pages long you can imagine that Thackeray tends to meander a bit That said I was taken by the contemporary nature of his tale touching on prejudice women s rights the corruptive power of wealth the false division by class and ven a pyramid scheme He is very gentle on his characters and in the Did the Greeks Believe in Their Myths? end I could understand how the length of the novel could take one through the winter nights of the 19th century with fullnjoyment and pleasure I ll let the novel describe itself by an xcerpt of it Hang it what a bore p 524I discovered with this novel that television was made in order to prevent any modern authors to write meandering logorrheic novels such as this one I merely skimmed the ntire novel and Codependent Forevermore: The Invention of Self in a Twelve Step Group even then I thought it was an undeniable waste of timespecially because when I compare this novel to series such as Narcos or Fauda this novel has barely anything happening within it If I were to compare this novel to a TV series it would be a popular Filipino TV program that overstayed its welcome It s probably Ang Probinsyano because both are devoid of uality and concision I d honestly re watch Bojack Horseman and get from it rather than re read this classic turd It was an absolute chore to Conscience and Memory: Meditations in a Museum of the Holocaust even skim yes skim the novel It deals about Clive Newcome I think and his travels all around the world but before weven discover that he s going anywhere there are about fifty pages of digressions about different kinds of academia and children and meaningless French and Latin terms interspersed throughout this doorjamb This was absolutely horrible Maybe Philo Farnsworth read this book and realized that he had to make television in order to prevent future readers to suffer reading through this ordeal I thought Laura Hunt s Ultra was bad but that was bad because of its poor use of psychology and deux Conscience and Memory et machinanding At least it had a or less coherent story and didn t waste too much of my time This one simply takes the cake for being boring and poorly written It s a primordial and intelligible Finnegans Wake of sorts both The Newcomes and the Wake are shit and rank among the Worst Novels I Ve novels I ve Although 213 people have given ratings to Thackeray s Newcomes on Goodreads and 14 people have written reviews I haven t met anybody who has Pansy Vol. 6 even heard of the book let alone read it I ve now read all 801 pages andnjoyed the novel but I understand why it is largely forgotten It is horribly overwritten ven by Victorian standardsThere is within this This work has been selected by scholars as being culturally important and is part of the knowledge base of civilization as we know it This work was reproduced from the original artifact and remains as true to the original work as possible Therefore you will see the original copyright references library stamps as most of these works have been housed in ou.
