Bleak House. What can I say about this one? Well, it’s bleak. Really, really bleak.
After listening to nearly two days worth of Charles Dicken’s Pickwick Papers (review here) I’d been wanting to listen to Bleak House, as it’s meant to be superb. So, I downloaded it, and started to listen during a morning workout. What immediately became apparent, was how thoroughly miserable the start is. I lasted 40 minutes before wanting to go back to bed and sleep until the following Groundhog Day.
So far that’s all I could manage. It’s really well written, but it is grim. Need to make sure I’m in a excellent mood before I start that one again! 🙂
Bravo Dickens! Your emotive writing is spectacular! 🙂
One thought on “Bleak House, by Charles Dickens – Audible Review – part one”
Perhaps it’s better to read it – I found it to be charming and not bleak at all… but perhaps that was partly due to my mindset at the time.
