The House of Mirth - Edith Wharton, Louis Auchincloss RATING: 3.5 STARSOn account of the fact that I do not officially review classics, my review for this will be short.I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I mean, really. But the writing was still a bit too flowery for my taste and the society seemed too extreme. Lily was a tragic and beautiful heroine who tries to live by society but in the end, cannot. It's absolutely heartbreaking, and a lovely read.
