You must read Dicken's for sheer entertainment, and insights on the human condition. He is a master of description, character and plot. Yes, he uses many words and waxes poetic over much, but the wax makes a candle to see into dark places. I read Christmas Carol every December! My other favorites are Great Expectations, Nicholas Nickleby, David Copperfield and Oliver Twist. You will laugh and cry over these stories and they will live in your heart forever.
