Hard Times, by Charles Dickens

One of Dickens's less famous novels is one of my favorites.

Hard Times

Originally published 1854, 321 pages, Available for free on Project Gutenberg.

One of Dicken's best works appraising English society. Highlights the social and economic pressures of the times. A masterwork.

In which a 50-year-old banker marries his best friend's teenage daughter.

Also by Charles Dickens: My reviews of A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities, Bleak House, David Copperfield, Great Expectations, The Pickwick Papers, and Oliver Twist.

My complete list of book reviews.
