Catherine based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I found Catherine to be funny and enjoyable despite Thackerary displaying two of his most unpleasant tendencies: using the Irish as the butts of his jokes; and being overly arch in his sarcasm. it is as if he did not trust the general reader to understand his humor. His point about the public glorifying criminals is still valid.
