A classic of class iniquity,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Room at the Top: Complete & Unabridged (Audio Cassette)
Expertly read and brought to life by Paul McGann, this fifties classic has not dated, and its message of the immorality of an iniquitous, opportunity denying class system remains relevant. My own understanding of the protagonist, joe Lampton, is that he was a victim rather than a villain, and seen in this light a decent man at the core.
