Recent Read: Bleak House by Charles Dickens

The first two chapters were pretty rough, but I know Dickens well enough to plough through and so far it's been worth it. The changes in narrators has been a little confusing, but  this book has also been full of fun Dickens characters, which has been really enjoyable. I have to say that Allan Woodcourt has to be my new favorite hero. The moment when Esther looks in the mirror for the first time has to be one of the most amazing passages that I've ever read. And I can't believe how Dickens tricked me with the framing of the murder!
