LOTR has been my favorite book since I was 12 years old and opened it for the first time. I've read many, many of the classics, best sellers, etc, but nothing even comes close.

Hugs,
Rach

Oh! Oliver Twist is a good one! I love all of Dickens works! I've bbeen watching through BBC productions of them lately and I can't tell you how good it is to see their visualizations of his characters.

Yes, I have. I think I've read all of Dickens except "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "The Mystery of Edwin Drood". I guess they should be the next two on my reading list. I don't know how I missed Curiosity Shop but I am dreading Drood. LOL It's the one he didn't finish (he died) and I kind of hate to start an unfinished story.

I LOVE "A Tale of Two Cities"! "It is a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done. It is a far, far better rest i go to than I have ever known" or words to that effect. I guess I just love Dickens for the comments he makes on the social ills of his times. He was quite the social rebel, that man. I admire him for speaking out. Too bad it didn't pay well.

You can learn a lot of history from Dickens, if you pay attention. The key to Dickens is learning how to read him. Dickens was always in debt, and often in debtors' prison because like many famous authors, he actually lived from his writing. Most of his books ran first as serials in magazines and he was paid by the word so he can be forgiven for being a bit...wordy. LOL After you've read a few of his things, you'll develop a knack for what you need to read thoroughly and what you can read quickly. After that, he isn't daunting at all.

I hope you enjoy him, but I bet he can be a bit of a task as an English language lesson.

Hugs,
Rach

My favorite book changes as often as my favorite movie.  But one book I truly love and could read on a desert island is 'Making History' by Stephen Fry
