    1. Este no es el primer Collins Classics que compro y tengo que decir que los recomiendo muchísimo. Si lo que buscas es comprar alguno de los clásicos ingleses a buen precio dudo que haya otra edición mejor.


    2. Lo compré para regalar y a menos que sepas inglés no se entiende fácilmente. Y, como todo lo de Charles Dickens, es muy bueno.


    3. I was a little hesitant to read this novel because I had heard it was boring and flat, but I chose to do so because I had read four of Dickens books already, and enjoyed them very much (especially "David Copperfield"), and because it looked like a fairly quick read. (Quick for Charles Dickens, that is!) It was not disappointing! So good! I enjoyed every page of this great classic! The plot is intriguing, and how all the characters turned out at the end of the book. It is made up of three sectio [...]


    4. This novel was a challenge to me albeit a shorter story than most, not so much the content but with his very creative colorful characters he also incorporated one with a lisp, that couldn't pronounce his “s” and another that spoke in a very “cockney” accent. In able to understand the content I needed to slow down and read the passages aloud. Very clever and somewhat playful Mr. Dickens. As with his other novels he wrote about the down trodden, misunderstood and serious difficulties of [...]


    5. I've read other books by Dickens, but this was my first time with Hard Times. I found the story and characters compelling and very interesting. There wasn't any part that was boring or dry (like the courtroom scenes in Bleak House) and I grew to know the characters quite well. I also got the companion Audible book and read and listened at the same time. I thought that really helped with comprehension and appreciation for the material.


    6. Dickens is the consummate story teller. He weaves a tapestry of personality and place with an unerring eye for detail and authenticity. In Hard Times he creates a contrast between those who live by objective standards and those who exist in a world of sense and feelings.His characters, especially the more mature, remind one of some they might have known, who reflected similarly, their life experiences. Some real other imagined. The benefit of reading this Classic lies in the timeless and true me [...]


    7. Hard Times by Charles Dickens was very good and engaging at all times. This was Dickens answer to Adam Smith. He posits that compassion and understanding are as important for a good life as acting in one's own self interest. He mocks the idea that fate responds only to self interest. I recommend this book highly. You can never go wrong with Dickens!
