    1. Charles Dickens

      Charles John Huffam Dickens 7 February 1812 9 June 1870 was an English writer and social critic He created some of the world s best known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors prison Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children s rights, education, and other social reforms.Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best known work of historical fiction Dickens s creative genius has been praised by fellow writers from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G K Chesterton for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism On the other hand, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters.On 8 June 1870, Dickens suffered another stroke at his home after a full day s work on Edwin Drood He never regained consciousness, and the next day, five years to the day after the Staplehurst rail crash, he died at Gad s Hill Place Contrary to his wish to be buried at Rochester Cathedral in an inexpensive, unostentatious, and strictly private manner, he was laid to rest in the Poets Corner of Westminster Abbey A printed epitaph circulated at the time of the funeral reads To the Memory of Charles Dickens England s most popular author who died at his residence, Higham, near Rochester, Kent, 9 June 1870, aged 58 years He was a sympathiser with the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed and by his death, one of England s greatest writers is lost to the world His last words were On the ground , in response to his sister in law Georgina s request that he lie down from

    1. Read it in one day on holiday.Basically just the musings of a chap who's stuck at The Holly Tree Inn, due to bad weather.To pass the time he reminisces about his passed experiences at various inns.A bit boring actually although being a Dickens tale there is a lesson awaiting the troubled muser.Turns out he had mistakenly thought his best friend wanted to marry his sweetheart and was getting away as a result.The weather keeps him at the inn which fortuitously leads him to discover his error just [...]


    2. I actually read this in a Wilkie Collins collection. Per the collection, Collns co-wrote it with 2 other authors and Dickens published it. It is fairly obvious that at least two and probably three different people wrote it as the styles contrast tremendously. Although a huge fan of both Dickens and Collins, I found it wanting. I suspect Collins wrote the beginning and ending (a rather lame tale of mistaken motive tied up at the last possible moment in a feel good in time for Christmas kind of wa [...]


    3. The language was difficult to connect with, but I was still able get through the book. There were some parts I had to give up with analyzing and move forward. The 2nd chapter was a little boring and uninteresting. 1st and 3rd chapters was a little more engaging. The moral of the story was to not assume, seek the truth, and love.


    4. A bit disappointed with this book particularly as I got it to read for a group discussion on Charles Dickens novels, later in the year, and when I read it found half of it wasn't even written by him!



    5. A nice Dickens Christmas Story especially Chapter 2. The only problem is this book dropped the last couple paragraphs, fortunately I had the story in another book.
