Charles Dickens’ Bleak House lives up to its title, exploring the bleakest parts of London and the dark desires of its inhabitants. The novel opens in fog, then takes the reader into the circuitous byways of the slum Tom-all-Alone’s and the through the interminable legal case of Jarndyce v. Jarndyce. With Dickens’ usual flair for names, we encounter Lady Dedlock, Inspector Bucket, Summerson, Skimpole, Tulkinghorn and Krook. Mysteries of identity and murder need to be solved before the end. Even spontaneous combustion makes an appearance as one character suddenly bursts into flame. Bleak House is the novel to read when you want to wander through the dark streets of Dickens’ imagination.
