Bookwormjillk Three hours!! You deserve a big scandal or something. I did love Mrs Cadwallader‘s description of Ladislaw though. “Oh he‘s a dangerous young sprig with his opera songs and his ready tongue.” OPERA SONGS! OH THE HORRORS! 4h
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk right!!? Because obviously that makes him dangerous, he might sing you to death 🤣🤣 3h
Aimeesue @Bookwormjillk @BarkingMadRead Not the opera! Anything but the opera! 3h
CoffeeNBooks I had a hard time focusing on this chapter. 🥴 2h

Hard Times | Charles Dickens

Happy birthday, Charles Dickens! It's a good day to read _Hard Times_, a book that feels peculiarly suited to the world we live in:

“'And he said, Now, this schoolroom is a Nation. And in this nation, there are fifty millions of money. Isn‘t this a prosperous nation? Girl number twenty, isn‘t this a prosperous nation, and a‘n‘t you in a thriving state?‘

“‘What did you say?‘ asked Louisa. . . .

Sophronisba “‘Miss Louisa, I said I didn‘t know. I thought I couldn‘t know whether it was a prosperous nation or not, and whether I was in a thriving state or not, unless I knew who had got the money, and whether any of it was mine. But that had nothing to do with it. It was not in the figures at all,‘ said Sissy, wiping her eyes.“ 13h

#pemberlittens read this #chunkster and I found this one to be vexing, amusing, and entertaining. I admit to a bit of eye rolling and gasps of oh no you didn't a few times. Overall this was a solid read.

BarkingMadRead Hooray! Love your copy!! 21h

This is a spectacularly written novel, with wonderfully fleshed out characters. It is, at its heart, a story of abuse, dashed hopes and the birth of new love against all odds.

While this work isn‘t very atmospheric, it is very compelling in its humanness. Many themes of this book are eternal and readers today and into the future will be able to resonate with it.

Both the narrators were fabulous and have done a tremendous job. Must listen!

SamAnne Loved this one too. 1d

New Patreon episode is up and out. We select a spy novel to read and Peter trolls me pretty hard on football issues. I think I handled it fairly well. Enjoy!
