review 1: I found "A Tale of Two Cities" and "Great Expectations" in the same volume at my library, so I read both over the course of about four weeks. My only real exposure to Dickens had been TV movies of "Oliver Twist," so I wasn't prepared for the English manner of speaking in the peri...

review 1: Ive just finished the fifth and final novella of Dickens Christmas series. I struggled with it even though I loved the characters within and it was a pleasure yet again of seeing life through the eyes of a giant in the art of observation. I'm definately going to read it again t...

review 1: I loved it. I would have liked for there to be more written of Sydney Carton. He is one of my favorite characters from the novel. The only criticism I have is with Lucie's character. She seemed unreal to me as a woman. But, I guess that is what you get from some Victorian li...

review 1: To have loved and lost it only to find love again; in someone else is the main theme of this novella by the master of characterizations, Charles Dickens. While I read this book I had to constantly remind myself that it wasn’t a work of Thomas Hardy. I am always happy to read Vict...

review 1: Always in the run up to Halloween and Christmas, I find myself reaching for Dickens and this year is no different. This is a charming short story told from the point of view of an eavesdropper listening in on five couriers recounting ghost stories. It starts with what, for me, is...
