    Charlie Is My Darling

    Dickens work has survived not because he just makes makes you think, but because he makes you feel, laugh, and you end up feeling what is going to happen to his characters. There are thousands of readers who famously waited on the dockside in New York for news of little Nel in...

    Well, His Work

    There is a humour in his work that is often overlooked.  He had such a wonderful wordplay and observational humour- at times he is very ironic and yet this is not seen. I do prefer to read his work as opposed to the dramatisations.  At present I am reading David...

    A Christmas Carrel

    I love the Christmas Carrel. Its the only story that I know of Charles Dickens. That is kind of sad. When I have read some of Jane Austin. I love the classicists. That is who I am at times.

    Claire Tomalin's Biography

    I have just waded through Claire Tomalin's biography of Dickens and wondered if anyone else has read it. I thought it was very good and certainly very comprehensive, charting both his life and summarising and commenting on every one of his novels and some of his other works. It...

    Though he is not my absolute favorite author,

    his descriptions of Victorian England are a sobering reminder that for most people, it was not a romantic time.

    Pickwick Papers

    It's Fantastic

    My first story I read was a Christmas Carol as a preteen. The symbolism, wording, characters, and plot were absolutely riveting. It was a great pleasure to read, digest, imagine, and re read again. My absolute favorite was Oliver Twist though.

    Great Expectations

    Dickens is a clever writer and all of his works are literary classics his works like, A Tale of Two Cities, A Christmas Carol, and my favorite Great Expectations. Dickens is without a doubt one of the greatest writers of all time.

    A Christmas Carol

    Charles Dickens is just one of those writers that wrote with such creative integrity you believe the characters as they are discribed.  Too often today's writers are stuck in a rut of cliche charaters that you never truly believe.  Scrooge will always be one of my most...

    There are still a few Dickens books I've yet to read - Barnaby Rudge, Old Curiosity Shop, Pickwick Papers - but I've read the others, some more than once. It's so difficult to choose his best work, but I think if you twist my arm I'd probably say Bleak House. But tomorrow I...
