Hilarious and deeply moving by turn, Edith Wharton's masterpiece is a riveting social satire that ponders the question of whether it is possible for those with inner beauty and moral aesthetics to survive amongst the moneyed elite and whether that elite is itself able to refrain from the destruction of the living beauty it so desperately tries to feign. Although set at the turn of the 20th century, the issues it addresses are as relevant today as they were then.

Very poor reading
Magda Allani sounded robotic, with little effect in the voices she tried to give each character. The novel is set in New York, yet Magda rarely pulled off an American accent - even resorting to a poor attempt of Cockney, for some unknown reason. Her accent is too heavy to portray the NY lilt of the era. Very poor choice of reader and it has taught me to always listen to a sample before I purchase.
