  1. have you seen the bbc bleak house adaptation (with gillian anderson?). you can also watch that on….for now. i loved it–but then tried to read the book and couldn’t get through it. i ended up skipping chapters to get to the good parts.

  2. I love the BBC adaptation of Bleak House too! Somehow, I have a feeling that the book will be difficult to get through. At least for me, once I see the movie/TV mini, I feel as if I already know the ending and the suspense evaporates. Unless, of course, there’s something special about the story that makes me feel like I’ve “gotta” read the book because there’s more to the story and I’ve gotta find out what that is.

    Gillian Anderson was spectacular in Bleak House; I didn’t even know it was her at first.

  3. Bleak House is my favourite Dickens and yes it can seem daunting at first. When I started reading Dickens I read a few chapters at a time as many of his books were serialised in this way and got along swimmingly.

    There is an earlier BBC Bleak House with Diana Rigg in which is also quite wonderful
