I read this major novel by Dickens 15 years ago. My impression is that I thought it was really good, but was not the book most people should pick as their first Dickens. It seemed to me, as I recall, that Dickens was reining in his characteristics of bizarre characters and brooding melodrama. I'm in the mood to revisit it and expect to post comments here. I'm hoping some others Chrons people will chime in with comments on this novel now or in future.
