'Bleak House' alternates between the narrative of Esther, a major character (in the first person of course) and a poetic third person narrative in the present tense.
It is also the novel which features the fabled spontaneous combustion and even a brief reference to dinosaurs, as well as a tribute to London fog, or smog. It's also a great dig at the legal system and some things haven't changed. A delightful read which shows Charles Dickens does have a sense of humour.
