I first encountered Charles Dickens in high school. My first Dicken's book was A Tale of Two Cities. This book made a lasting impression in me of the gifted writer's genius and ability to reach the heart with a great story, masterfully told. After I read this book, I felt encouraged to find other books by Dickens, and through the years have worked my way through most of his titles. Dickens will challenge you. His books are not "light reading". But if you devote yourself to reading them, you will find rich rewards. His pace in introducing characters is slow and he seems to savor the development of his characters. He takes the time to flesh them out and to slowly build suspense and curiosity in the reader's mind of the fate of his heroes and heroines. I have found that it takes me about 1/3 of the book before I am fully acquainted with the full cast of characters and their place in the story. But this slow development is to be savored and enjoyed, rather than fought. As you read, you will find yourself learning a good deal of classical literature and how well read the typical 19th century reader was! I found the end notes very informative, and book marked that section of the book for easy reference as I read. In doing so, not only did I enjoy the story, but I enhanced my education as I read. In addition, I often referred to the list of characters in the front of the book, as some of the more minor characters take some time to get to know. Little Dorrit is a story that enchanted me. I found myself taken a way to a world of debtor's prisons, family obligations, love, humor, and intrigue. I got angry at some characters, and longed for others to be rescued. Mysteries drove me forward through the book to find their solutions, and in the end, I was very satisfied. This book made me think, and I know I am the better for having read it. Although Little Dorrit was not my favorite of the Dicken's novels, it is a strong book that I will read again, which, for me, is the mark of a truly good book.

I had watched the PBS mini series of Little Dorrit and found I had many questions. So, I decided to read the book in order to discover the answers. I had forgotten how challenging and involved Charles Dickens writings are! I did get my questions answered. This is a book which needs to be read slowly with time in-between to digest what has been read. The characters are very complex and sometimes the reader is mystified as to how all of the characters might eventually tie together. I did enjoy the book.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is a true Dickens style, incorporating multiple twisted plotlines and then somehow tying it all together at the end. And of course, the memorable characters make the novel even more enjoyable. Amy Dorrit is one of the sweetest characters in literature. And who can forget Mr. Arthur Clennam, Little Dorrit's love interest who takes particular care of the Dorrit family by trying to discover the secrets behind why Mr. Dorrit is in debtor's prison. Edmund Sparkler adds a humorous flavor to the story as the good-for-nothing, says nothing of consequence husband of Amy's older sister, the irrepressible dancer, Fanny. The gentle Plornishes bring to mind the Macawbers of David Copperfield. While the book is indeed long, it nevertheless is worth reading. Whether it is a rainy day outside or one just needs a way to escape, Little Dorrit is well worth the time. After reading the book, I recommend also watching the movie, which is as beautifully created as the Dickens novel.

I watched the Masterpiece DVD that came out and loved it so much I had to read the book. I loved the books just as much as the movie. It is a great read. It kept me occupied while I had a bad cold. You should also watch the movie. :)

There is no question that this is an incredibly well-written book: An amazing narrative, well-developed characters, and psychological insight rarely seen in other books. I found that there were a couple challenges for me: This book is extremely long, and the plot has a tendency to be tedious in places to this post-modern reader's mind. In spite of that: it's a must-read.

This book is frought with misprints and formatting errors. One would be better served by buying a more thoughtfully digitized ebook version to actually enjoy Dickens' work. The ebook deserves 2 stars solely on the basis of it being free and the content of the original book.

Classic Dickens with all the varied characters in the book. How he kept all of the characters in his head for all of his different books is amazing. His characters are so real that you can almost touch them. Love some of the unusual quirks he gives them and the unique discriptions of them. They have such obudurate ideas and yet remain so real to today's people. Just goes to say that people never change they just evolve in society.
