Finally finished listening to Little Dorrit, Charles Dickens, 688 pages. This was a re-read on audiobook, read by Simon Vance. I've read this book in print in 1990 and 2009, and then listened to the audiobook in 2012. I just am amazed at the voices and nuances that Simon Vance brings to this book. Several times I was brought to tears--not a good thing when your listening while driving.

Finished a re-read of Adam Bede by George Eliot (1859); 540 pages. I'm struck how Eliot has no "evil" characters in this book. There are plenty of people with faults and who make bad choices, but unlike Dickens, there is no one really horrible person.
