My Recommendation

I attempted reading Dickens too early on in life and never went back to seeing if I would have enjoyed them in later life. This was one of the books I was oddly okay with when I was done(if I am remembering right) but I did not recollect all of it before starting this book.Despite that, it was an interesting read. Unlike the Edgar Allan Poe version I had read earlier(Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe adapted by Stacy King), there was a lot more conversation in this one, which had to be trimmed for the format and I think some of the effect may have been lost there.It was an exciting read though, solely because of the drawings and the emotions (sometimes exaggerated for emphasis). I would not mind trying more books of this kind again,
