It appears as though I am going to love this book--I already do. Though it is a soap opera, Dickens makes every single character make sense and have a purpose.
Even at 100 or so pages into the book, I quickly drew lines in my brain connecting the lives of the various characters. I will warn you that there are spoilers in the Wikipedia descriptions, so be careful--they will tell you of the twists to come.
I am a little more than half way through the first book and I am already having to make myself put it away so I can accomplish something throughout the day. Stop by the discussion board and share your thoughts so far. Which character do you find the most intriguing? Why? Who do you think killed John Harmon? How likely is it that these people would all be connected in this manner in real life?
I will post by Sunday my thoughts and some discussion questions for the first book.
I love your comments!!
