A Chancery judge once had the kindness to inform me, as one of a company of some hundred and fifty men and women not labouring under any suspicions of lunacy, that the Court of Chancery, though the shining subject of much popular prejudice (at which point I thought the judge's eye had a cast in my direction), was almost immaculate.

I'm a huge fan of Dickens, but this book is tedious. Try one of the others.

Dickens at his best, in my opinion. He properly castigates society for its lack of mercy and grace.
