My year with four million words of Charles Dickens

My year with four million words of Charles Dickens | Music, Literature and Art | Scoop.it
Almost a year ago the BBC's Matthew Davis took up the challenge of reading all of Charles Dickens's novels in 2012. How did he do?
marsdentherapy's insight:

I had a security job once that also enabled me to read the whole of Dickens. I read them all, apart from Dombey and Son which I have started several times and not yet finished. A fear of endings maybe? My favourite is probably Oliver Twist (I do like a bit of Victorian Gothic) and my least favourite, Martin Chuzzlewit, which seemed to go on for ever.
