message 1: by Mary (new)

Mary Pellecchia I am pretty sure this is the book that caused a riot on the NYC dock when the ship pulled in with the last installment. The crush of the crowd was great when everyone wanted to know if Little Nell died or not. If this is the book with Little Nell, and I think it is, you can read for yourself what the excitement was all about.

Mary Pellecchia p.s. I don't know if she dies or not. You'll have to read it to find out, which I have not done. sigh. So much dickens, so little time.

message 3: by Erin (new) - added it

Erin I believe it is, judging only from the Monty Python sketch where great literary characters build blocks of flats... :-)

message 4: by Mary (new)

Mary Pellecchia Didn't remember that! Amazing what you can learn from the Monties. They are/were (Graham) avid readers themselves, I would guess, considering the wealth of allusions.
