I was disappointed but apparently a lot of folks loved it so take my view with a grain of salt. I was put off by a rather unlikeable man who seemed to be almost stalking his muse, a gorgeous young thing.
I’m familiar enough with Dickens’ life to know that he did do some womanizing and wounded his wife (and 10 children) terribly. I’m not fond of the man, but I enjoy his writing and he had nice liberal ideas with some exceptions.
