- Author Charles Dickens
I have a love/hate relationship with Charles Dickens, but this one was a book I loved. It was different in style to many of the Dickens books I have read so far, much more concise, far less of a sprawling work. The story was interesting, and although it did follow a character through much of their life, it felt a lot more focused and structured.
The pictures painted of some of the characters were fantastic, I have heard of Miss Haversham in passing but now have such a vivid image of her in my mind. Terrifying Orlick, the lovely, lovely Joe, and loyal Herbert, they really grew on me as I went along.
Enjoyed this one immensely, and think it has gone straight towards the top of my list of favourite Dickens‚Äô books.
