it was amazing

Dickens felt like he was at the height of his comic genius when he wrote this, and he can't be too far wrong. The hypocrite Mr. Pecksniff and the loquacious, sodden plain nurse Sairy Gamp have entered literary history. To me, it seemed so unique because the main character that got the girl and the estate in the end didn't seem like the hero to me. My hero was Tom Pinch, whose never failing good humor, innocent belief in how people represented themselves to him, his tremendous humility and generosity to others won him a place in my heart forever.
