If you've never read "Vanity Fair", this is the version to watch. You'll feel as if you've read the entire book; it is extremely faithful to Thackeray's classic. The production and the story had me hooked, and kept me coming back for each episode even though they were shown at 6am each Tuesday for a number of weeks on A&E. Eve Matheson as Becky was sly and conniving and thoroughly enjoyable. The ensemble cast were every bit as good as she was, and I highly recommend this adaptation for everyone.
