The novel tells the story of Carrie Meeber, a Midwestern country girl who moves to Chicago. She meets a salesman, Charles Rouet, and after a period of unemployment becomes his mistress. Soon, however, she becomes disillusioned with him and takes up with his friend George Hurstwood, a middle-aged, married restaurant manager. He embezzles money and elopes with Carrie to New York, where he opens a saloon which fails. Their liaison continues for some three years, until Carrie is forced by their impoverishment to work as a chorus girl to support them. Though she makes an impression in a small part and begins what is to become a successful career, she fails to find happiness.

I thought this was too slow moving for the most part, and I'm not a big action fan. Dreiser spent too much time digressing with his own philosophies of how he views things. None of the characters seemed to have much moral fabric or heart. I didn't like any of them. I got through it, but didn't find it too realistic. The characters seemed superficial and only seeking their own selfish goals. I did enjoy the historical facts about how people lived in New York in the early 20th century.
