I have always enjoyed Dickens' books. The good are so good. The bad are so bad. As intriguing as his novels, the man's life is just as full of drama. His childhood was a nightmare (often reflected in his stories). His career was up and down. He was a talented dramatist as well as author. He had a wife and ten children but later became involved with a sweet young thing half his age. He died at the ripe old age of 57 years. It only confirms my belief that the stories of real life people will rival anything written in fiction.
