Hard Times (abridged)

Charles Dickens

Hard Times

Read by Anton Lesser

abridged

In this, Dickens’ most openly political novel, we discover the terrible human consequences of a ruthlessly materialistic philosophy in the lives of Thomas Gradgrind’s family, brought up to believe that only ‘Facts! Facts! Facts!’ have any meaning. Set in Coketown, a typical Lancashire milltown, the novel graphically exposes the truth about Victorian ‘progress’.
