Gee, he kind of missed the point of the book, didn't he? The example description of Dora, for instance, was MAKING FUN of the melodrama of teenage David. It is supposed to have a sort of theatric, almost fantasy quality because most of Dickens' books are like that - what was he expecting, Tolstoy? He evidently read it very narrowly and literally, without looking for the deeper meanings that aren't explicitly spelled out. Not a childish book, but a childish reading.
