Disgruntling. Misleading. Humorous. Intriguing. Maddening. Mysterious. Confusing. Superstitious. And… Dickens.

In short, I was angry with the main character until the very ending of the book, due to intentionally deceptive descriptions on the part of Mr. Dickens. Therefore, I did not enjoy the book as much as I probably should have while reading it. I was better able to appreciate the full storyline after I had completed the book. Interesting read.
