I've only ever read one Dickens book before when I was a kid. 30 plus years ago. Thought I'd give this free book a go and see what I've missed.
The actual story is wonderful but I can't help thinking that it could have been told in half the time. Dickens does love a bit of flowering language which isn't really to my taste. Description is one thing but not at the expense of the story. I did find at times that my mind wandered a bit.
