Ugh. I finally finished Bleak House by Charles Dickens. I am going to lay off Dickens for a while. I listened to this one on audio book and it just took forever. It isn't necessarily that bad, just desperately in need of a good editor. I had a tendency to forget who was who as there were so many characters, some of which would be gone for several chapters (or a couple cd's in my case) at a time. And, other than the narrator Esther, i didn't really care much about them. In truth, i knew i was really over this book when the adorable urchin died and my one thought was "yay, fewer characters/subplots!". ah well.
I am going to cleanse my mental palate with some comics now.
