It took me a while to read The Bonfire of the Vanities by Tom Wolfe, but I loved every page! I vaguely remember when the movie came out, and after reading I Am Charlotte Simmons, I was eager to get my hands on this book. This is a courtroom drama set in New York in the 80's. What I liked best about the story was how influential the media was, especially this one reporter from a tabloid-style newspaper. This story raises a lot of questions having to do with race and wealth especially as well as how invasive the media should be. The character development in this book is outstanding, and you can really feel what how each character feels about the events that unfold. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves character development and also mystery/courtroom stories.
In other news, I know I haven't been posting as much lately. I have been really busy and stressed out due to a medical issue (that's been taken care of! :) ), and moving out of my apartment. I plan to post a lot more after this weekend when my move is complete!
