Major Amberson had "made a fortune" in 1873 when other people were losing fortunes and the magnificence of the Ambersons began then. Magnificence like the size of a fortune is always comparative as even Magnificent Lorenzo may now perceive if he has happened to haunt New York in 1916; and the Ambersons were magnificent in their day and place.

One of the best books I have ever read. At first, it seems to be a story about an arrogant child growing up and becoming and insufferable adult. But It is so much more than this. It is a story about choices and how they can shape your life forever. It is a story about love; the love of a doting mother for her son, the love of a father for his daughter, or the love of a woman for a man. Most of all, it is a story about forgiveness, for none of us are perfect.

The downfall of a family and its fortune in three generations. Well written and stars one of the most unpleasant, arrogant, selfish characters in fiction.
