Dickens Discussion
You might really be surprised when I tell you the Dickens story I've read 4 times. Not counting shorter stories like a Christmas Carol.
I've read several books to my girlfriend, and at the moment I'm considering reading her The Old Curiosity Shop. it features one of Dickens' most tragic heroines and one of his most grotesque villains.
My very favorite Dickens character is one that might surprise a few people. It's Barnaby Rudge, the good natured, athletic, and yet feeble minded yet man who get's caught up in the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots and is sentenced to hang along with his less likeable friend, Hugh the Gypsy.
