Hard Times/North and South - Reading Day III

Well, I did it - nailed myself to the seat and finished the last 120 pages of Hard Times. Alas, I have paid the price and my neck and back feel like a croquet hoop. Tomorrow, I will quickly skim through the Utilitarianism paper, then move on to North and South over the next couple of days. I am dead - spent 19 hours over this book all told and I have no choice but to move onward. Saying that, Hard Times was an interesting book - shows the folly of heavy-handed age-of-reason guidance does to a child. Made a hollow shell of Louisa and an absolute automaton of Bitzer.
