Charles Dickens died on this date...

From Writer's Almanac:

Quote:
It was on this day in 1870 that the novelist Charles Dickens died (books by this author); he had a stroke and fell off his chair at the dinner table.

Dickens asked to be buried “in an inexpensive, unostentatious, and strictly private manner,” so even though he was buried in Westminster Abbey, it was a secret funeral, early in the morning, with only 12 mourners. But the grave was left open for a week and thousands of people, all types of people, came to throw in flowers for the man whose tomb is inscribed with the words “He was a sympathiser to the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed; and by his death, one of England’s greatest writers is lost to the world.”

Go read some Dickens!

Perfect day to be able to resume listening to an audiobook version of David Copperfield; I've been on a little Dickens binge lately.

OK. I will. Any suggestion for a high interest work? I've already read A Christmas Carol, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, and Oliver Twist. Of the remaining books, which would you suggest?

I vote for Bleak House; great characters (Tulkinghorn and Skimpole) and a spontaneous human combustion.

I've read all of Dicken's books, some several times; my suggestion to Nanny for a next read would also be David Copperfield.

I did decide to download the Illustrated ePub of David Copperfield from the MobileRead library. Thanks to HarryT for his craftsmanship and careful editing.
