the satire of this book the end this is also sentimental and melodramatic Many things happen such as view spoiler the Colonels eath Clive s wife Glitterwings Academy: Midnight Feast No. 2 dying leaving him with a child Mrs Mack the Colonel losing his fortune ect hide spoiler Iidn t enjoy this as much as Thackeray s Vanity Fair and I can understand why it s not read too much today Counter Discourse in African Literature despite being very popular until about 100 years ago While there are moments of both sly humor and true pathos to pull you in it s not the kind of story that transcends its time For example one of the main characters Clive is just an emo wanna be artist whooesn t o much but travel around have fun and moon over his cousin It s hard to feel much sympathy for a guy like this but you know that contemporary readers would likely have found him charming and sympathetic especially when his fortune is wiped out about 125 pages before The Story EndsI Disliked story endsI isliked the all the women in this book were either evil shrews Lady Kew Mrs Mackenzie simpering fools Clara Rosey or virtuous angels Madame Las Hermanas: Chicana/Latina Religious-Political Activism in the U. S. Catholic Church de Florac Laura later Ethel Truly I liked the shrews best as they are the only ones who show any backbone and pragmatism Similarly Iidn t find the hero Clive s father the Colonel especially appealing for the last third of the book If you blow the entire family s fortune refuse all offers of help Double Action Deputy (Cardwell Ranch: Montana Legacy Book 4) due to your honor and then literally end up a charity case well Ion t call you a saint To my 21st century eyes you are a pig headed idiot with a martyr complexThere are some interesting points on the upper class marriage market which I think still ring true today In addition Thackeray is great storyteller even when you re frustrated at what his characters are The Alien Corn (The Canadians doing As a piece of mid Victorian literature if you like that sort of thing it s the sort of thing you ll like A crow who had flown away with a cheese from aairy window sate perched on a tree looking own at a great big frog in a pool underneath him The frog s hideous large eyes were goggling out of his head in a manner which appeared uite ridiculous to the old blackamoor who watched the splay footed slimy wretch with that peculiar grim humour belonging to crows Not far from the frog a fat ox was browsing whilst a few lambs frisked about the meadow or nibbled the grass and buttercups there I picked up this book after reading Trollope s Ralph the Heir which mentions the main character of this book uite a number of times as.

The Newcomes Memoirs of a Most Respectable Family Edited by Arthur Pendennis EsWas very good but also very long Pure early Victoriana if that s your cup of tea o enjoy Generally engaging characters the course of a fitful romance takes place over a ecade 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 of wealth the false ivision by class and a pyramid scheme He is very gentle on his characters and in the end I could understand how the length of the novel could take one through the winter nights of the 19th century with full enjoyment and pleasure I ll let the novel History of the Niagara Falls Power Company, 1886 1918, Vol 2 of 2: Evolution of Its Central Power Station and Alternating Current System; Construction and Operation describe itself by an excerpt of it Hang it what a bore p 524Iiscovered 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 entire novel and even then I thought it was an undeniable waste of time especially 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 Afghani and 'AbduhAn Essay on Religious Unbelief and Political Activism in Modern Islam devoid of uality and concision I honestly re watch Bojack Horseman and get from it rather than re read this classic turd It was an absolute chore to even skim yes skim the novel It Rehab Doesnt Work - Ibogaine Does deals about Clive Newcome I think and his travels all around the world but before we eveniscover that he s going anywhere there are "about fifty pages of ITS NOT YOUR FAULT digressions aboutifferent kinds of academia and children and meaningless French and Latin terms interspersed throughout "fifty pages of Unfinished Puzzle digressions aboutifferent kinds of academia and children and meaningless French and Latin terms interspersed throughout Data Analytics 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 andeux et machina ending At least it had a or less coherent story and idn 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 of sorts both The Newcomes and the Wake shit and rank among the worst novels I ve read 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 even heard 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. ,
F the book let alone read it I ve now Read All 801 Pages And Enjoyed The Novel But I all 801 pages and enjoyed the novel but I why it is largely forgotten It is horribly overwritten even by Victorian standardsThere is within this obese sprawling novel a good novel trying to escape Somebody not me should cut the novel to about a third of its present length and it might well then be widely read known and enjoyed I wouldn t however cut the long sentences that would be a mistake There is a pleasure in the inflated sentences And Paragraphs And If paragraphs and if were to be cut the soul of the book might be lostI read the book because I read somewhere that it painted a satirical picture of Clapham at a time when the abolitionists the excessive o gooders were wiping away the licentiousness of the Georgian age and forging the stiffness and hypocrisy of the Victorian age Clapham and an archetypal Claphamite a rich endlessly busy intensely religious missionary supporting woman who runs a bank and promotes good causes are Alchemy Arts depicted at the beginning but soonisappear leaving just a flavour struck me most about the book was its intense criticism of the marriage market in Victorian Britain The main job of the mother of aughters was to get them married to somebody with wealth and ideally a title which often meant marrying a much older man There was no room for love character or even attraction Indeed the worst thing that could happen to a mother was for her aughter to fall in love with a man who might be smart handsome and honourable but poor Two of the main male characters in the book spend many years a lifetime in one case longing for woman who have married or are marrying for money not love But it was worse for the women and I M Going To Put Together going to put together blog illustrating Thackeray s feminist viewsI took many uotes from the book too many for the space available here so I ll put them on my websitehttpsrichardswsmithwordpresscom The Pendennises are way better in this than they are in Pendennis The Newcomes is a book written by William Makepeace Thackeray The Life of Kitty Storm during the Victorian era It s one of his most Victorian books to be written containing countless illusions and references towards a multitude of things before and of his time Examples being Oliver Twist The Arabian Nights and Don uixote Throughout the book Latin French Greek and Italian are used in an untranslated state too so be warned of that In the review written by K we read that she thinks the book is For the first 400 pages this was the most rambling and I concur this book isn t very concise about itself for uite a long time if ever but Ion t write that to Aliens Bride Book dissuade people from reading I loved thi.
