    " when i started reading dickens, i had never even heard of this one. and maybe my 2nd or 3rd favourite of what i've read so far "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lincoln | 1/21/2014

    " (Book on tape: Blackstone Audiobooks edition.) I loved it. I love Dickens, the way he writes. It was 21 hours or so, but I never lost interest. It centers on an episode of history that I knew nothing about -- the Gordon Riots in England in 1780. What a great way to teach history! But it's not just history, it's about characters, and I love the way Dickens makes me get to know them and to care about them. I look forward to my next Dickens novel. Everybody should try him! "

    " Discovered an episode of English history of which I was ignorant, interesting story which kept me reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Reeser | 12/19/2013

    " This is my favorite of all the Dickens books. I don't know why, but I read it in 9th grade, and it haunted me like no other book of its kind. I have reread it two times since, and I still feel this way. And it amazes me that no one ever mentions this book when talking about Dickens. That baffles me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darrenl | 12/16/2013

    " A sometimes overlooked Dickens classic. The description of the Gordon riots is a remarkable piece of writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Douglas | 11/4/2013

    " Fantastic story! My wife and I read this together and absolutely loved it. Charles Dickens has got to be the best author to capture the true nature of man in all of his goodness or in his depravity. Barnaby and Grip make a great duo. This is a must-read for Dickens fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 10/20/2013

    " There has never been a riot committed to paper like Dickens manages here - the riots of '80! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Gimlin | 6/7/2013

    " This was my last Dickens novel to read and I was sort of sad to let it go. It stands as strong as any of them. On to the Christmas stories, travel essays, and starting back again with Oliver Twist and Great Expectations. "

    " It was a historical perspective on the Protestant riots in England. It wasn't the greatest Dickens book that I have read, but it was decent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Misha Crews | 1/1/2012

    " I enjoyed this book very much. I didn't fall in love with it as much as with some of Dickens' other books, but like all his work it was full of tragedy, comedy and colorful characters. Definitely recommended. "

    " This is a very long book so I decided to go with the Dovegreyreaders recommendation of the Sean Barrett narrated version in audio book form and he was terrific, really bringing the book alive. "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
