Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad..Just not my kind of book. Good book, great writing, it was just not my type of book so I wasn't very interested while I was reading it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A fine trip to another era I hadn’t read Wharton in a long while and had forgotten how effortlessly elegant and immensely readable her writing is. This novel is about the beautiful, witty and still unmarried Lily Bart. Although from a good family, she is poor and needs to find a husband to support her. Her precarious footing in New York society makes for an interesting tale set at the very beginning of the 1900’s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Summer Delight My first impression upon reading "The House of Mirth" was relief, relief that I had not been introduced to such a novel in one of the many literature courses required for my degree. Had I previously read this novel, my impression would have been one of modest enjoyment but not rapture. Being somewhat more mature and certainly having gained experience in love and life in general, Lily Bart captured my attention like no other character. For those enamoured by social code of an era past, duty and moral obligation, this novel will not disappoint you. If you were truly captivated by Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the d'Urbervilles", Wharton's examination of a woman's plight from the female perspective and published fourteen years later, will surely engage you.
