Charles Dickens records his impressions of America during his 1842 journey. - Summary by Brad "Hamlet" Filippone (9 hr 55 min)


(5 stars)

First chapters had me thinking it was just a humorous story, then came observations of how America and Americans were then. Then came his final assessment. Raw and sobering. The good news: we have greatly improved. The bad news: he points out issues that haven’t been addressed by too many. The message should be heard again in this day. Well read throughout.
