Overview

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.‘Money's a horrid thing to follow, but a charming thing to meet.’Isabel Archer is a beautiful, intelligent and independent young woman. Brought from America to England by her wealthy Aunt who seeks to further her education and find her niece a husband, Isabel is determined to shape her own future – one that does not necessarily entail becoming a wife. Isabel inherits a fortune when her rich uncle dies and feels even more inclined to turn down two eligible suitors on the basis that she is a woman of her own means. However, a trip to Italy heralds her downfall when she meets the charming Gilbert Osmond, a worthless, yet ambitious and scheming dilettante.

Yet another story about faulty human nature. Just like in the Great Gatsby, the story goes over a typical parasitic behavior of an average upper class woman, who believes that she is somewhat special just because she was born this way. Stories like this one honestly make me sick.
