Bleak House Readalong Ch. 8-13
This week for the readalong we read chapters 8-13. I had a hard time getting through some of these chapters. I have to say, if I ever get Insomnia, I might have to reread them. I did like a lot too: My. Gubby made a hilarious proposal to Esther. Esther refuses and Mr. Guppy becomes a stalker. A man named Nemo dies. Richard has no idea what he wants to be when he grows up. There is a mystery surrounding Lady Dedlock and the mystery man Nemo. Ada and Richard fall in love .I think Charles Dickens purposely gives ridiculous names to his ridiculous characters. Yes, I'm talking about Mrs. Pardiggle. I felt sorry for her sons and for the Brickmaker and his family, or anyone in general who might have the misfortune of crossing her path.
