Charles Dickens' most notorious reading from the classic Oliver Twist is performed by his Great Great Grandson Gerald Dickens. Causing ladies in the audience to faint and Dickens himself to collapse, Nancy and Sikes always shocked the audience. The drama and the passion of Nancy's murder are still as powerful and chilling as it was in Charles Dickens' time.

    " The narration on this one, done by a decendent of Charles Dickens, is just too awful to talk about. "

    " I've read several books by Dickens, and this is my favorite. He's not really complimentary of the United States as he observed it, but some of his opinions were warranted. "

    " In the 19th century this was offensive to Americans and boring to Britons. Today, to this American, half is boring and half is beautifully written and dead right. Glad that schoolwork forced me into this one. "

    " It was ok. Driven by his own prejudices and with some questionable facts at times. Funny at times. The chapter on slavery at the end is worth reading even if you don't read the whole book. Still, Dickens should have stuck with fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Iamapremo | 1/6/2010

    " Good travel literature and true to the author's curiosity. However, this will bring the reader to a more bombastic side of Dickens than expected. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Even | 9/23/2009

    " Dickens' travelogue begins lightly, but the humour quickly devolves into cloying and annoying. Much of his interest is in the public institutions of America, but his descriptions are dull and condescending. This one is generallly bereft of anything interesting or informative. "

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.
