Mehhh... It was ok. It took a while before I could really sink into the story and immerse myself in Dickens' prose. For the first half of the book, I found it difficult to desipher exactly what was happening. Add this to the fact I could care less about any of the characters (except for Carton, he kicks ass), it made for a challenging read. The las thrid of the book picked up the pace and became much more engaging. The story itself proved to be very entertaining by the end, and while it was a decent book, I now understand why I enjoy Hemingway as much as I do.
