This wasn't my absolute favorite Dickens (that would still be "Bleak House"), but I really loved it. I think I liked the first half better than the second, though - the most incredible thing about this book, for me, was how fabulously Dickens captured a child's perspective. Hands down, this is one of the best portrayals I've read of what it is like to BE a child. Young David processes things exactly like a real kid; it was a delight to see his world through his eyes.

Every time I read something by Dickens, I am amazed all over again at what a master storyteller he is. Few writers are able to create such complex stories so successfully. Dickens introduces SO many characters and storylines that I am continually left thinking he can't possible tie them all together—but by the end of the book, he has done exactly that. This book was no exception. HIGHLY recommended.
