Hard Times - Charles Dickens, Karen Odden

Not my favorite Dickens book Ive read, but worth reading I think. This one is more sermon like than some of his other works and it does get difficult sifting through that to get to the dialogue and story of the characters, but the tale itself is interesting. The writing felt more dense than other Dickens' work but I did come to be interested in the characters and liked the ending though I was a little surprised by some of the outcomes.
