Arthur Clennam, the hero of Little Dorrit, is a fully believable adult version of a deprived child, while Mr Dorrit's fatal combination of weakness and humiliated pride is skilfully developed. Little Dorrit offers the best and worst of Dickens (wit, lyricism, character, humanity, caraciture, sentimentality, over-extended passages, great plot with some very clunky bits). Overall, though, it's in the top half of his novels. I can't praise Anton Lesser enough. His narration is simply fantastic.
