Little Dorritt

I've just finished watching the new BBC version of Dickens' "Little Dorritt" (available on Netflix, but make sure you order all FOUR DVDs.)

What a great story! I love Dickens and his over-the-top characters, and some of this themes (money vs. true happiness) are as relevant today as they were when Dickens wrote. The acting is wonderful, the characters fascinating, and the costumes are fabulous. Well worth watching, plus it's broken up into episodes, so you don't have to sit down and watch it all at once.

Though you may well want to. :-)

So glad you enjoyed Little Dorrit! This miniseries was just spectacular...and once I start watching it I find it very hard to stop. :)

I've had a hard time with anything by Dickens (well, except A Christmas Carol!) ever since I had a bad English teacher in 9th grade and we read A Tale of Two Cities.

But this one sounds interesting.
