One must remember that this was written in the 19th century and can be a bit difficult to read, with extremely long and detailed descriptions of location, thought and action not found in today's works. Like many of Dicken's novels, the plot is convoluted and chronicles the tale of a young person and his family who have fallen on hard times and the people who both help and hinder their well being. Highly recommended for those who enjoy these old classics or just the patient reader who enjoys a good story.

Humor, drama, pathos, with a boatload of intriguing characters. Entertaining throughout.

I really don't like Victorian lit, but his writing has invaded my head, and I find myself thinking of the characters and wanting to find out what has become of them at odd moments of my day. Well done, Charles Dickens.
