really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, us_1900-1940, romance
Recommended for: Lovers of high society, vocabulary
Read in September, 2007

I thought the book was a bit slow to begin... OK, really slow. I love the writing, but the plot made Lily Bart seem to be so prissy and stupid. But then toward the end, I couldn't put it down because I wanted to see which of her would-be suitors she would end up marrying. I will definitely read more Edith Wharton - excellent command of language.
