Since Guille is finished and Sterling is way ahead of me, I'm going to post as I read. I'm only around a hundred pages in.
So far I have found the book very hard to get into. The other day I was annoyed by the repetition of names. Mrs. Chick, Miss Tox, Mrs. Chick, Miss Tox, Lousia, Paul, Mr. Dombey, blah, blah, blah.
I looked and saw that the book in print is 1028 pages and my heart sank. I had no idea how long it was.
I did, however, read a customer review which interested me. It described Dombey as a very every day sort of villain, not malicious, but cold, unfeeling, and single-minded. I like that.
I enjoyed what I read this morning a little more. It was mostly about Florence's getting lost and the subsequent dismissal of Richards.
