Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Monday, October 22, 2018
I found this softcover in this Little Free Library in New Canaan CT while stopping by to drop off some books of my own. This is one of my favorite Dickens novels, though it took me until fairly late in life to have the courage to dig into it.

As so often happens, I found that I enjoyed the secondary characters (Mr. George and young Jo among others) and their stories more than those of the principal characters, but I found the whole network of relationships very entertaining - and all the more satisfying because I could spot most of the twists and surprises well before I got to them, which made me feel clever {grin}. An absorbing novel, now one of my favorite Dickens works. [And I highly recommend the unabridged-audio version as read by Robert Whitfield, aka Simon Vance.]

The 2005 mini-series based on the book was very well done, a good book-to-screen adaptation. And there's a TV Tropes page with lots of interesting tidbits.
