Publisher's Summary

An assembly of family, friends, lovers, and enemies are ensnared by the long-running court case Jarndyce and Jarndyce. For orphan Esther Summerson, it might lead to the truth of her parentage. The arrogant Lady Dedlock fears the legal tangle could expose her secret. For the malevolent solicitor Mr. Tulkinghorn, the costly dispute is a gainful opportunity. As for John Jarndyce, Esther's guardian and master of Bleak House, it's a chance to correct the past. When questions of inheritance become a trigger for murder, the sharp-eyed Inspector Bucket enters the fray.

Reaching from the treacherous upper crust to the humble London slums, Bleak House is Charles Dickens’s masterful social satire with equal parts mystery and romance.

Revised edition: Previously published as Bleak House, this edition of Bleak House (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Excellent readers do amazing job with Dickens.

The grim story is alight with brilliant characters... So v. We'll delineating by only two readers! If you find the narrator's voice tedious, continue... It's only a Victoriana... The characters are Human and compelling. Beautiful writing, reading and an excellent listen..
