Bleak House by Charles Dickens. 0.00
Set in England sometime between 1827 and 1842, this novel satirizes the then-deficiencies of the English Chancery court system (wills, estates, and uses of private property) by following events pursuant to the death of a man who wrote several last wills and testaments, resulting in questions as to his true final intent. Most of the narration is done by Esther Sommerson, the main protagonist. Many characters develop numerous subplots that thread through the main plot in this book, considered possibly Dickens' best novel.
