Bleak House

By Charles Dickens

I started reading him in my Great Aunt’s old complete leather bound edition (kept in a glass case!) when I was 9 and still read one Dickens a year. This masterpiece is my favourite, full of magnificent set pieces.

At the High Court of Chancery, the interminable case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce continues, having “become so complicated that no man alive knows what it means”. A group of disparate people involved in the dispute, from the upper echelons of society to the slums of London, is at the centre of this ambitious novel, which represents a scathing indictment of the Court of Chancery and the broader legal system.
