Im at university and read this book for the first time. It is a complex story but well worth the time. the little kids that said this is boring need to go back to it when they are older to apreciate it. Im glad I finally got to read some Dickens after years of Shakespeare at school. I think the way he describes the characters is fantastic, its such a good book. Im not going to tell you whether to read the book or not. Have a go and judge for yourself! All I want to say is its so not boring!
