The Magnificent Ambersons from Kimmie

The Magnificent Ambersons by Booth Tarkington
1918 Prlitzer Prize

The Amberson's are a rich family on the glitzy side of town. But times are changing and the family is unable to keep up with the times. Spoiled young Georgie grows up believing he will live the life of a gentleman-no career necessary. But the modern age is upon him. The auto industry is getting into full swing. Industrialization is covering the town with a layer of soot. And Grandfather Amberson is putting out more money on his family than he has coming in.

I loved this book. It shows us that the times are always a-changin.
