Not really sure how to rate this yet. I like the overall story, but I’d rather just watch an adaptation.. Even though it’s a short book, I don’t care for the story enough to spend the  time reading it. I’m a slow reader, especially with classics because of the older language. I did not mesh with the writing style. Most of the book was easy enough to understand but there were parts I had no clue what was being said, and Dickens really likes to drag things on sometimes. I skimmed a little because I kind of just wanted to get through it. I think part of the issue as well is that I’m so used to the adaptations that I’m not gonna have a strong reaction to the book, already knowing everything that happens.

The muppets version remains superior
