Point Counter Point

Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:excellently written

Cons:a bit cumbersome at times.

This book may be considered the 20th Century Vanity Fair, but I assure you, Thackery never wrote as splendidly or as enticing Huxley. Huxley has no concrete heros or anti-heros - they're all blessedly flawed. Whereas Vanity Fair is a more readable book for plot. Point Counter Point focuses on character development, forcing the reader to become personal with him/herself, and thrusts them in a intrisic world of philosophy, sociology, and Art. This book is much more than an expose of the "intellecutal elitists" (Lawrence, Porter, etc.) of his time, but an understanding of the artists behind their art, the thinkers behind their philosophy. The themes in this story become quite applicable to our modern day lives, as it encompasses love and relationshiops.

I marked so many wonderful passages in this book! Point Counter Point is a book that I enjoyed reading as a young adult, and am eager to read again as broken-in adult.
