Dickens uses such long sentences. But he's colorful and it's good to get back into that type of fanciful story.

In the Chimes, we meet Trotty - so called because in leiu of walking, he trots. Colorful is his character, more clever is the rythmic trot in his speech: "And he we are and here we go. And here we are and here we go"

I adored the Cricket on the Hearth and will read it again; I know I didn't get it all in the first run. The kettle with the personality in the beginning sets the tone. You want to be in front of a fire, or under a quilt, on a snowy day reading this book. I good book for a cozy day that you can relax and read knowing you have time on your hands.
