I haven't read Hard Times. In addition to the novels you've listed, I've read Our Mutual Friend, Little Dorrit, A Tale of Two Cities, The Pickwick Papers, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Joffre, if your list is in descending order, then I am essentially in agreement. Bleak House is my favorite, and David Copperfield is my least favorite. Drood doesn't count, in my opinion. I would list the late novels, OMF and LD, high on my list, and the very early Pickwick low. ATOTC is entertaining but minor. Perhaps I will eventually read all of them. (After all, there's only sixteen, counting Drood and A Christmas Carol, and I've read ten. Eleven, after I finish Dombey and Son.)
