Wharton’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel set in upper class New York City. Newland Archer, gentleman lawyer and heir to one of New York City's best families, is happily anticipating a highly desirable marriage to the sheltered and beautiful May Welland.

This novel won the first ever Pulitzer awarded to a woman.

Great book, well read, and best deal!
While the volume is at times uneven, it certainly wasn't distracting enough to give this version a bad review. You get used to it and the reader has a pleasant enough voice to overcome it. Loved the book itself, loved this version, and can't beat 95 cents!
really really great
this reader really brings the characters to life. i had read this years ago and enjoy it even more in audiobook form.
95 cents for a good reason
The reader has a nice lively voice but the sound quality is uneven - it gets suddenly loud and suddenly quiet and I keep having to adjust the volume. Also she mispronounces so many words it's very jarring! With some coaching she could go far.
