3.5/5 Goodreads

Resignation and resentment run deep amongst the troubled mills of Coketown; even the children at Mr Gradgrind's school are ordered to stifle their imagination and only pay attention to cold, hard reality.
Profoundly affected by their father's teaching, Tom and Louisa Gradgrind find themselves ill-equipped to handle the incalculable desires of the human heart, but through their friendship with child Sissy Jupe, the child of a circus clown, they will be offered another, more hopeful vision of life.

"It is proof of Dickens's genius that you can read Hard Times as if it were all happening now" - Guardian
