I found this to be engaging, challenging and comforting. I find myself compelled to indicate that as the sessions progressed, I found myself anticipating and dreading the sole yacking, laughing attendee whose threshold for sharing his joy seemed quite a bit lower than everyone else in the room. In spite of my desire to "be in the now" - which I should have been , in response to this individual, I found it distracting and detracted from my ability to listen to it again
I was really looking forward to this based on book reviewers. Couldn't finish it. Continually spinning its wheels on an overworked theme- the one left behind - alive- . Tried it two or three times for several hours. "Rumination all over again", lapsing "phraseology" , as if the author is remunerated , based per page.
Dickens comes alive and seems totally contemporary- not that we really want him to be of our world. This is by far the most engaging narration I have encountered. Found myself looking for other works he has read. The characters are memorable and crystallize in the author's depiction. It is a story that you may find yourself thinking about after it's done.
