Read Great Expectations.

My first Dickens and not my last. I love the way he writes, I love his wit and imagination. The twists and turns in the last third/quarter of the book are fantastic, keeps the page turning. The rest of the book is just a pleasure to read, beautiful. Pip's early behaviour really got me angry, he was pompous indeed, but I still loved him.

Comparison and contrast were never better used than in Charles Dickens' classic a tale of two cities. He interweaves the French Revolution with personal stories and relationships that culminate in memorable actions. Another one of my all time favorites. If you appreciate a writer on top of their craft you will enjoy Charles Dickens.

One of the most perfect stories I have ever read. It has it all.... Charles Dickens was a genius, and his writing is still important. I have read this over 11 times, and I imagine I will re-visit it in the future!

I loved this book. I chose to read Oliver Twist. This book had everything, interesting and complex characters, intrique, and how glad I am not to have lived in London, during that time.

Three great Dickens classics. First you get a war adventure, you then face hard times at public work houses, and then you get caught up with a convict.

It's true that I've a love affair with Dickens. Along with Tolkein, I can re-read his books with impunity.
