What to do when your dad is a crazy French prisoner? Go find him and bring him home of course! Dickens captures the turmoil of the times making our world seem just a little bit more normal than we thought we were.

I have to say I'm slightly biased in my writing of this review, by virtue of the fact that I've always loved the writing style of Dickens. The style incorporates vivid imagery. As to the work itself, though it's rife with violence, as was the time, there are, as is usually the case in Dickens' novels lessons to be learned from every character, and the book is packed with some of the most beautiful and elloquent prose that I've read to date.
