5/5

Ranked #749 out of 960 in Books

Publisher's Description:
Since its publication in 1905 The House of Mirth has commanded attention for the sharpness of Wharton''s observations and the power of her style. Its heroine, Lily Bart, is beautiful, poor, and unmarried at 29. In her search for a husband with money and position she betrays her own heart and sows the seeds of the tragedy that finally overwhelms her. The House of Mirth is a lucid, disturbing analysis of the stifling limitations imposed upon women of Wharton''s generation.

Every summer I go through a phase when I read a lot. So, like everyone who reads a lot, I went through a "classics" phase. I absolutely fell in love with this book. The heroine Lily Bart is tragic, a little shallow and you can't help but want things to work out for her. It's Romeo and Juliet -esque ending had me in tears.
