Finished: “The Magnificent Ambersons,” Booth Tarkington (#100)

by mostnovel

A bratty, old-monied kid watches the turn-of-the-century world pass him by as he looks down his nose at technology and hard work (and the wealth they create), and slowly but surely gets his economic and societal comeuppance. Filled me with joy; imagined a similar fate for many real world prodigal and petulant analogs in my life. Cute, easy read.
