Review by shirleybell
This took a while to read. It's the first Dickens I have read all the way to the end! I enjoyed it, although my enjoyment was slightly spoiled by the fact that I already knew the story (or I thought I did) and that I kept comparing the book to the famous film, which is quite different! My next Dickens will be a story unknown to me...
