    " My favorite Dickens (so far) "

    " Inspector Bucket may be my favorite Dickens character. He cracks me up. I love the BBC miniseries, and Alun Armstrong is a great actor, but the way the character is written for the script, does not fully portray Bucket as he is in the novel. Bucket is a decent and hilarious man in the novel, and the miniseries reduces his role to a less entertaining, less interesting personality. Just re-watched the miniseries for comparison to the novel. "

    " Maybe 3.5 stars? I like Dickens, but there are plenty of times I had to force myself to keep reading (and several days when I didn't). As always, I think it could have been about 40% shorter/more concise, but I guess that's Dickens. Still, by turns dark, funny, and sentimental. And I especially enjoyed Inspector Bucket. "

    " Dated narrative and contrived, but a page-turner nonetheless. "
