Hard Times - Charles Dickens

So, Lousia is married and we've been introduced to Jem. Tom is kind of an idiot, from what I've gathered so far. What about Sissy?! I thought she was...the plot?


So now I don't really know what the plot of the book is. Why exactly do I/should I care about these people? And what was with that random interlude with what's-his-face and the wife he can't divorce and Rachael? Will they ever come back? So many questions, Dickens!
