Five Years Ago
When I found the Retold Version of ‘Bleak House’ (Charles Dickens) in my grandfather’s book shelf, I remembered my grandfather who bought this book when he had a plan to teach his students. Although it is intended as an aid to young readers which will start them on the road to reading, it seemed to me so difficult. I thought if I read its original, it might be more difficult.
When I saw the original novel of ‘Bleak House’ at the book shop, I decided to buy it at once although I had no plan to read it at the moment. See that I had not finished its Retold yet!

A Month Ago
At last, I was decided to read it. Bleak House, all sixty-seven chapters of it, is a short time to meet so many people, more than four dozen of them. The third-person narration and the first-person narration attract the reader’s interest to the end of the story. For my opinion, I preferred first-person narration on Dickens’s writing. It was the first time I found that the Retold Version of ‘Bleak House’ was only written in third-person narration, and changed the Dickens’s writing style.
This time, according to the Original ‘Bleak House’, and meeting enormous characters in the list, its Retold Version seemed to me so difficult and I could not grasp all of them. I could not finish its Retold for years. But during reading the Original ‘Bleak House’, I had finished its Retold in a day! How strange!!
