This was a slow read for me but much like Gone with the Wind was totally worth it. Dickens creates a perfect blend of Prodical Son retelling and tragic cinderella story. Every character came to life effortlessly and painted an effective portrait of raw humanity in all its flaws and beauty. The hard climb to redemption, unrequited love, forgiveness, bitterness, selfishness, hope, class, greed, evil, family, desire, secrets, tragedy and friendship all have a place and a theme in this remarkable story. I think everyone should read this. It moved me to cry tears of joy and sadness in numerous places.
