Publisher's Summary

In this, Dickens' most openly political novel, we discover the terrible human consequences of a ruthlessly materialistic philosophy in the lives of Thomas Gradgrind's family, brought up to believe that only "Facts! Facts! Facts!" have any meaning. Set in Coketown, a typical Lancashire milltown, the novel graphically exposes the truth about Victorian "progress".

Only wish I'd spent my credit on a longer book.

The various character voices are fantastically distinctn Anton lesser seemlessly transforms his voice from character to character in a way that seems effortless. I shouldn't have to tell you that the story is, of course, a treasure and a pleasure - as Dickens always is.
