Barnes & Noble Synopsis: A savage but often comic indictment of a society that is rotten to the core, "Bleak House" is one of Dickens' most ambitious novels, with a range that extends from the drawing rooms of the aristocracy to the poorest of London slums.
My Review: This was a really depressing novel. It sort of dragged for me, too. I mean, the opening is noted to be one of the best and most poetic descriptions of London and its FOG but it was sort of boring. The fact that he suddenly SWITCHES point of view really threw me off. And Esther was a boring character. I had no sympathy for her at all. I have no sympathy for Mary Sue characters in the first place. I liked Lady Dedlock and Skimpole but just because they were amusing. I didn't really like this book. Of all the Dickens novels I've had to read for this course I'm in, this one was my least favorite.
