Bleak House Charles Dickens Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Considered one of Charles Dickens’ greatest novels, Bleak House is at once a complex character study and a scathing indictment of the British legal system. Dickens employs a unique narrative structure, alternating between a near-omniscient third-person narrator to, in some chapters, the first-person perspective of one of his characters: Esther Summerson. Esther, along with the rest of Bleak House’s extensive cast of characters, find their lives in constant flux due to the seemingly endless property litigation of Jarndyce and Jarndyce, a case representing all the damage done by the court’s strict adherence to unimportant procedure.
