My reviewrating: 3 of 5 stars
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Charles Dickens and how witty his prose was. I chose this book because it is on the MLA Must-Read List. It was the shortest Dickens' work on the list, so I figured it was the place to start. I hadn't read Dickens since high school (Hard Times) and his writing style was now unfamiliar to me.
I can't say I loved this book, but I did enjoy it. The story is well-known to most of us, so it was interesting to read the original version. Next Dickens books on the list are Great Expectations and David Cooperfield.
