really liked it
Recommended for: Anyone, especially Dickens fans
Read from February 23 to March 20, 2012

Although this is one of Dickens' earlier works I am not sure it is as well known as some others. This was a bit atypical of him in one sense, in that he ties things up in the end a bit differently than in some of his books. Can't go beyond that without a spoiler. I suggest not reading the introduction before the piece if you have this edition.

As always his wit, humor, and masterful twists come into play as well as his wonderfully weird characters

Nicole I've run across a similar "spoiler" problem with some editions of classics I've read. If they're going to talk about the plot, I think they should do it as an afterword instead.

Charly I've decided to read the work and then go back to the introduction in the future.
