5.0 out of 5 stars Superb
From its first publication in book form after the serialisation, Little Dorrit has always proved to be a good seller. So why has this book always been so popular? For whole segments Amy 'Little' Dorrit does not even appear. The novel covers so much more than the title implies.

Little Dorrit is born in the Marshalsea, where her father is imprisoned for debt...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good on characterisation poor on plot
Warning: this review contains spoilers.

The major strengths of the novel are its characters and atmosphere. Every character is sharply drawn, we can visualise them in our mind's eye; Dickens has the ability to invest each of them with their own distinctive speech patterns. He can also create atmosphere whether it be describing the Marshalsea or the interior of...

As always Charles Dickens sets his females out as strong characters and heroines, an enjoyable book which was intense in parts.

A really good story but you have to be aware its written in Victorian times so is a very dated style of writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Americanised spellings in an English classic!, 26 Dec. 2008
By 
Mr. Dj Livesey "Doug" (UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Firstly, I love American literature, and find many American classics more accessible than many English classics.
Amongst my favourite authors are Gore Vidal, William Burroughs, Norman Mailer, and many more.
And I find Americanised spellings in their works to be perfectly appropriate.
So I am *not* a xenophobe.
I am, however, deeply insulted that an English classic is being sold with revised American spellings in Britain, with no indication on the cover (or anywhere on Amazon, or even the publisher's site that I could find) that this is the case.
This is cultural insensitivity at its very worst.
