    This book is veeerrrrry wordy and tedious. I do not recommend it to anyone

    As one of the classics, I expected a certain amount of description, but, boy oh boy. However as the book warmed up more dialogue emersed. His description of the characters was good, but to me dialogue can really flesh out a character a lot better than just mere telling. Also, I could see how in the 1800's this book would be risky but, unfortunetly it's the norm now a days. I do recommened that you read this book. Classic European writers offer such a wealth of beautiful words and phrases that it would be a shame if you didn't take advantage of it.
