I decided a few months back that I was going to re-visit some fiction that I read when I was in high school and hadn't re-read since. Last week I finally got around to the first of these books and I'm reading Vanity Fair. I did a term paper on Vanity Fair my junior year in high school and I've seen the movie with Reese Witherspoon, but much about the book seems unfamiliar.
There is a lot of depth that I missed as a 16 year old and the movie is made to make certain characters--especially Becky--more likeable than they really are. Next I want to move on to some books that I didn't like when I read them the first time and see if I get more out of them now.
