Review Pickwick Papers Vol. 1 Chapters 21-26

Victorian Web
This section starts off where our last one left off with the old man telling the story of Heyling. But soon, well sort of soon resumes the pursuit of Mr. Jinks. There's a rather unfortunate matter of Mr. Pickwick going into the wrong room at the inn and surprising unwittingly the intended of the rather kind gentleman he'd had dinner with that night.

This of course leads to another court case which fortunately ends well with a hot lead on Mr. Jinks.

Not to mention Mr. Weller gets his revenge to some degree as well. Everyone returns to London and Mr. Weller pays a visit to Mrs. Bardell to discover how serious she might be about this lawsuit.

I'm finding the additional stories a little tiring but the main action is rather interesting. Mr. Weller is developing into a much sneakier and satisfying character. I hope he can rescue Mr. Pickwick from his predicament with Mrs. Bardell.
