Dickens rocks, amiright?
In 2017, I finally lived up to one of my long-time goals and read Great Expectations… and I loved it!
And so, in 2018, I’d like to continue my blossoming friendship with Mr. Dickens, and I need some advice. So far, the only Dickens I’ve read are Great Expectations and A Tale of Two Cities (one of my all-time favorite books). And while I haven’t actually read A Christmas Carol, I’ve seen enough stage and screen adaptations to make me feel like I know it well enough and don’t need to spend any more time on it.
Here’s where you come in. I’m looking for recommendations:
What’s your favorite Dickens book? What do you think I should tackle next?
Leave a comment with the title of the book you’re recommending, and — very important — tell me why you recommend it.
As a thank you, in addition to my eternal gratitude, anyone who leaves me a comment with a suggestion will be in the running for a small prize — so don’t be shy!
We readers are an opinionated bunch. Now’s your chance to tell it like it is!
What Dickens book should I read in 2018, and why?
