An absolute delight to read and my all-time favorite book. Thackeray uses the narrator as a character unto himself, who subtly but aggressively pokes fun at Thackeray's contemporaries.
The characters are funny, loveable, despicable, and ridiculous. The entire book takes a satirical approach that will leave the reader in stitches. I love reading this book over again simply because there are so many little jabs that it is easy to overlook some of them the first time through.
I have a taste for sarcasm, and this book is full of it. An absolute must-read!
