Bleak House

Bleak House - Charles Dickens, Hablot Knight Browne, Nicola Bradbury 1.5 stars. to be fair, i skimmed at least 40% of this book. but i just found so much of it to be completely superfluous; the entire thing could have been written, without loss, in like 250 pages. i guess his long-windedness allows him to talk about some things that i'm glad he put in - like poverty, homelessness, domestic violence - but i might have taken 4 months to read this if i didn't skim it like i did.
