I finished yesterday and am really looking forward to the discussion as I have very mixed feelings about it. Since this is my first (and last I might add) Dickens book I am curious about one thing: are all of Dickens characters so one dimensional?
In "Aspects of the novel" E. M. Forster discusses whatbhe terms 'flat' and 'round' characters and uses Dickens to illustrate the terms". According to Forster, Dickens' trick was to describe flat, one-dimensional characters in a way so that they appear more round than they actually are.
