    and... and ... and / ,and....,and....,and...

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to express your opinion about the following two sentences? The former is written by London and the latter- by Dickens.

    These visions come out of things and events and books of yesterday and last week.

    It lightened, too, for three whole hours; each flash being very bright, and blue, and long.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    I like the first; it builds up by starting with a nondescript word (things), gets grander and more formal, then ends up with a spot of bathos.
