Our Mutual Friend - Charles Dickens, Adrian Poole This book has some interesting things going on it, but I found it difficult going. The main thing that comes to mind is the way it jumps around, introducing new characters and changing scene quite often. I certainly don't object to that as a technique in general but in this case I was finding it difficult to maintain my interest. I can see myself coming back to this one as many of the aspects of Dickens' style that I like are present here, but it is definitely back on the shelf for now.
