It really is. Possibly the best paragraph in the entire 813 pages, and we get it on page 1!

That is a bit of an anti-climax.
With you both on this one. I remember writing this whole paragraph out so as to add it to Goodreads as a quote, just because I liked it so much ...

Good to know. I've been on the fence about Little Dorrit, but you're the second person who has mentioned it as a good one. There are a few that I have already decided I'm not going to read.

Does the lack of an ending to The Mystery of Edwin Drood make it a bummer to read, though? That's my primary hesitation with that one, which otherwise sounds like it would be quite a good time.
Have you read The Quincunx by Charles Palliser? It's in the style of Dickens and is fabulous. And The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton is also in that style.

I haven't read either of them, and they are both on my want list.

I have to say, I am addicted to Abebooks. I just ordered a copy of The Quincunx for a whopping $3.49 with free shipping.
