Any lover of Eng. Lit. Will enjoy this last novel of his--but it requires endless patience to sort out all the characters and keep straight the complex of plot threads. Very funny in spots, and way too sentimental toward his heroines, as always, but readers will enjoy groveling in the chill, gritty, charcoal fog with its endless swindlers, phonies and cold blooded killers.

Has felt rather like running a marathon - a hard slog but just had to get to the end. A tortuous plot and had to concentrate to keep track. It includes all Charles Dicken's favourite themes; poverty, the corruption of money, hatred of the legal profession along with a wide variety of quirky and amusing characters. The narration was marvellous and brought to life the characters in the book really well.
