This is supposed to be one of the great books that everyone should read before they die. I read it. It didn't kill me. I EXPECTED to like it way more than I did, and I didn't hate it.

As it is, I'm enjoying his descriptions of people and places. I think the fact that I'm listening to the version is helping. Perhaps, like Shakespeare, Dickens is better heard."
