Review Pickwick Papers Vol. 1 Chapters 27-28

It's Christmas time. And really who better to render Victorian Christmas better than Dickens?

Two quick chapters for this installment that promises the tale of goblins in the next. The first chapter Mr. Weller pays his filial duty to his pa and gives him some advice about the dubious minister his mother-in-law (step mother to you and me) has taken up with.

The second chapter brings us to Mr. Wardle's with a wedding and Christmas festivities. Love is in the air everywhere. And Sam Weller attempts to reform Joe, Mr. Wardle's sleepy and gluttonous servant.

Overall I was rather reminded of the general feeling of a Doctor Who Christmas special. Which is not a bad thing during the rather wet and humid summer we're currently having.
