Bleak House Readalong Ch 1-7
As you might have read, I have had Bleak House sitting on my bookshelf for some time. I found this readalong and thought "What a great idea!" so I signed up for it. Then a couple day ago I thought "What have I done? How am I going to find time to read this?" Well, I finally found some quiet time time and I am glad I did! How did my first seven chapters of Bleak House go? Well I am glad you asked!
I really liked the characters of Bleak House. Esther is my favorite. My heart broke for her in the beginning. I look forward to seeing her character grow and develop more. Mr. Skimpole is my least favorite. He drove me up the wall! Maybe it's because I know people like him in my life. People who don't take responsibility for their lives and expect other people to clean up the messes they made. GRRRRR Anyway, Charles Dickens described London in such a way that I feel like I have been there. In my mind I could see the streets, the fog, people walking on the sidewalk. I enjoyed the first seven chapters and I can't wait to read more.
