Widely regarded as Dickens's masterpiece, Bleak House centers on the generations-long lawsuit Jarndyce and Jarndyce, through which "whole families have inherited legendary hatreds." Focusing on Esther Summerson, a ward of John Jarndyce, the novel traces Esther's romantic coming-of-age and, in classic Dickensian style, the gradual revelation of long-buried secrets, all set against the foggy backdrop of the Court of Chancery. Mixing romance, mystery, comedy, and satire, Bleak House limits the suffering caused by the intricate inefficiency of the law.

This wonderful and complex story is told with creative and masterful language. It was something to look forward each day for my commute. Dickens shows great insight into human character in this book, from the plot, selection of character names, descriptions of the people and court system, etc. What a sense of humor. I'm sorry I'm through it, and know that I will read it again some time.
