One of the best books I have ever read
Loved this book each time I've read it. Dickens is wonderful!
One of Dickens best. It is hard struggling through any Dickens book due to the flowery speech, the excessive wordage, and the overly dramatic ways of that time, but the story told hear is interesting and absorbing. Tough to read but equally tough to put it down.
