Audio books rock, fyi.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Being that it's by Dickens and I enjoyed it, that's just this side of a miracle. Typically, I can't stand the man. But, I understand why this is referred to as his masterpiece. There is so much to it. It's beautifully done, a work of art. As it was my driving companion for the past few weeks, the more interested I became, the more I looked forward to heavy traffic. I didn't want to stop listening! It's not a light read, but it's well worth the time and effort.
