A Timely Cautionary Tale

Everyone should read Little Dorrit. It is a cautionary tale about the power of money (and the lack of it), its effect on those who have it (or not), and how fortunes can change in the blink of an eye. It is as relevant today as it was then.

There's also mystery, danger, and sinister darkness (with a hint of black magic) in this book. Plenty of page-turning action to keep readers engrossed.

One of the Best

The language use of Charles Dickens is unparalleled. It is so rich. Each time I read Dickens it is like enjoying a fine meal. ?Little Dorritt? is one of his finest. Without taking away the efforts of many to recreate the works of Dickens in video, it simply cannot be adequately done. The video results are entertaining, but they are not Dickens. His use of the English language of his time cannot be repeated in a film, in spite of all good intentions.
?Little Dorritt? and ?Bleak House? are two of his best and show a greater maturity than the wonderful ?David Copperfield.?
