-This books is printed in a 16 pt. large print for easier reading.Hard Times is a classic novel by Charles Dickens which tells a story of the value of the human heart. Coketown is dominated by the analytical figure of Mr Thomas Gradgrind, school owner and model of Utilitarian success. Feeding both his pupils and his family with facts, he bans fancy and wonder from young minds. As a consequence his children make decisions that lead to hard times in their lives. Gradgrind's young daughter Louisa marries the loveless businessman and bully of humility Mr Bounderby, and his son Tom rebels to become embroiled in gambling and robbery. And, as their fortunes cross with those of free-spirited circus girl Sissy Jupe and victimized weaver Stephen Blackpool, Gradgrind is eventually forced to recognize the value of the human heart in an age of materialism and machinery.
