Hard Times

Hard Times - Charles Dickens Hard Times - hard going. Not one of my favorite Dickens' novels but I did make it through to the end.

There were a few wonderful descriptive passages but I found the plot thin and the characters two dimensional: I never felt much for any of them.

More one to have "ticked off" than to go back to.
