This is typical Dickens where many subplots are interwoven into an overall main plot. Many subtle moral implications are made about the characters and subject matter.

I highly recommend this book as I would all Dickens books. The true intention of the book is there in all the amazing characters that Dickens invents and the predicaments that are their's due to life circumstances and their own actions. Dickens always comes up with appropriate names for some of his characters as in McChoakamchild as a teachers name. I found that to be very amusing and too true in some instances of my own life. As for the accents and so called run on sentences well, practice the accents outloud till you get them. Any education, and that's what I consider reading books of another time period as, is worth the practice and little bit of work to obtain such enjoyment.

The prospect of millions of free titles may seem appealing, but you get what you pay for. In this case, the first paragraph alone indicates the value you receive for zero dollars. Nearly every other word is mis-scanned, rendering the text virtually unreadable. Don't waste time on the free texts. Spend a dollar to get a version that is edited and contains a functional table of contents.

I read this for a college class years ago. Thought I remembered liking it - not sure why now. Although I am a Dickens' fan, this book moves all over the place and doesn't follow through on its original premise of an education consisting only of facts/

This is a really good book I like the way that the author is telling different stories. I like the characters and how they are associated with the book. I like that even though Sissy is taken from her father she is still able to do well. She is upset at first but learns to deal with the change in life style. Sissy is able to relate to Louisa she knows that Louisa is unhappy about getting married but she does not mention it. I think that there should have been some type of show on television about this novel it is truely well written.
