No, I would not recommend this book to a friend. As embarrassing as it is to admit that a classic by Dickens is tedious, it was true for me. Perhaps because it was first published as a serial, it is separated into separate "adventures" that have little connection to each other. At different times, I began to feel like, "what is the point of this story line?" The story is clever and funny, but it just wanders along. Finally, despite an excellent narrator, I stopped listening to this novel. The narration is excellent. I did listen to this novel for a long time because the narrator made the story come alive.
Maybe for a break. If I want something light hearted and a story that is easy to follow while being distracted.
The snarky descriptions of the sister-in-law were funny.
Cute and silly story, well read.
