Since "Martin Chuzzlewit" is the last one I read, I'll try it. Let's see . . .
Leads a bit flat; supporting cast brilliant. Mrs. Gamp hilarious. Mark Tapley & Tom Pinch come off well. America, not so much.

Ah, this is weird! I've never tried tweeting, but here's mine for Barnaby Rudge:
Very exciting, unusual style for Boz. Unexplored time period was a nice change, characters like Dolly were awesome. Couldn't put it down!

Oh, nicely done!
Here's one for "Little Dorrit":
Strong & sensitive characters and touching romance will win your heart. Also, you'll be glad debtor's prisons were abolished.
