    Great in every sense of the word. A fantastically crafted book with powerful characters and a dastardly plot, which has so many twists and turns it pulls the reader in and holds them fiercely in it’s grasp. I’m reading this book again after many years and find it even better than I remembered it! A true classic.

    This book definitely exceeded my own expectations. It keeps a good pace, has lots of memorable characters and plenty of unexpected turns in the story. Not always rosy but always hopeful and absolutely couldn't put it down.

    First classic I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will now consider more Dickens. I was pleasantly surprised by the humour, and laughed out loud several times. Dickens creates atmospheres and ambience you can almost smell. His characters are complete, you know precisely what you are dealing with. Great read, persevere with the language and you start to appreciate it.
