Charles Dickens

but I couldn't make it pass page three!

HAH! This is cute, Timothy. This reminded me of Tom Lehrer's satire song "A Christmas Carol". -"Kill the turkeys, ducks and chickens, Mix the punch, draaaag out the dickens, Even though the prospect sickens, Brother, here we go again!" Always, Laura

Never heard that one before! Perhaps when I'm feeling adventurous I'll "drag him out" once more ;) You ever heard of Richard Cheese? He does jazz, big band parodies of heavy metal songs .... look up Down with the Sickness Richard Cheese ... it's funny!

I loved Great Expectations, we had to read it in grade six but I really enjoyed it so it was not a chore. If you have a chance check out my Pantoum, you seem familiar with the form and I want to make sure I am on the right track.

I will for sure do that! I might pick up a Dickens again... but at the current state I can't wrap my head around the style of writing.

Ha, nice. But I have to disagree, with novels like Our Mutual Friend and Bleak House! :)

Perhaps I'll pick it up again... the mindset you have, when picking up a book, is very important. Thanks for commenting...

Thanks Jack. It was his level of fame that allured me...

NO!!!!!! NO NO NO NO NO!!! Timothy!!! Seriously? David Copperfield, A Tale of Two Cities..."It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"..."Recalled to Life" I'm writing a poem on that one! I loved Tommy Traddles so much I drew skeletons all over my locker! Uriah the Heep...what a creep..a living example of Satan! Steerforth being saved from drowning by the man whose girl he stole? COME ON! RECANT! RECANT! RECANT!!!

I seem to have brushed upon a sensitive topic with you... lol! So far Sherlock Holmes has been the only nineteenth century literature that wasn't too hard to understand the era-barrier.

I honestly WANTED to like Dickens. He was so famous and looked incredibly interesting. But it was really hard to move past the olden style language... I actually made it through 50 pages or so, but found it difficult to familiarize myself with the language. Maybe someday I'll pick it up and try again!
