The Mystery of Edwin Drood is Charles Dickens' contribution to the field of crime and its detection.

When young Edwin Drood disappears, suspicion centers on John Jasper, a drug-addicted choirmaster who hungers after Drood's fiancé. So does Neville Landless, a Ceylonese who has previously quarreled violently with the missing man. The mystery if further enhanced because it was left unfinished at the author's death. Thus the book has challenged the imagination of generations of readers. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " What can I say...Dickens is the master. If only he'd been able to finish. I feel as though he sets up clearly where he's going to go with the story...but it's hard to say with CD. Fun, engaging story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate Taylor | 2/3/2014

    " Dickens' last, unfinished novel and a murder mystery of sorts, so perhaps the best criteria is to judge whether one is bereft at being forced to abandon this book midstream. Well not exactly bereft. More like faintly inconvenienced. The characters -- a sappy woman, heroic man and evil villain -- are less complex than his standard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey | 1/26/2014

    " Dickens died before he could finish this. The ending has been written by many other authors. I cannot get through any of them. The difference in writing is extreme. Horrible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rose West | 1/24/2014

    " A good book, even though it's unfinished. It surely would have been a classic Dickens if he had lived to write the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 1/20/2014

    " and one goes in and the other goes away "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Zorro | 12/30/2013

    " Good opening scene...then it all went to hell (literally) - The London Underworld. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samuel | 12/7/2013

    " They were right...this really is unfinished...heh...ah well. Usually they have another author put the loose ends together...they've done this with Jane Austen's unfinished works. I've got an older BBC production of Edwin Drood...I'll have to see how the producers thought it ends there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lara | 11/22/2013

    " As good as Great Expectations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ana Baybee | 11/17/2013

    " lemme see. ma madre reccomended this so imma try to read it noww &shitfacee "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen | 11/9/2013

    " Just as my interest is piqued, the mystery ends. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 10/21/2013

    " Found it to be difficult to get into and when you are enjoying it, it stops. Even though Dickens died before the tale was completed it is generally believed that the killer and the method of death are known. Too predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Rasmussen | 9/6/2013

    " I knew that the mystery wouldn't be solved due to Dickens' death before he finished the novel, but it was still disappointing to have it end so abruptly! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norma | 12/31/2012

    " I got this book because it was featured in "The Last Dickens" by Matthew Pearl. It took me awhile to get used to the the sometimes archaic language but once I got past that I really enjoyed it. Too bad it's unfinished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Autumn | 1/6/2012

    " From what I have read by Dickens so far, I absolutely love this unfinished novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 9/10/2011

    " It would be a 5 star if there was an ending. One reason I love dickens so much is his ability to pull the entire story together and tie all loose ends with great endings. So disappointing, maybe in the afterlife I can find out what he was planning. He is genius. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 6/9/2011

    " Shifting gears from the YA novels I had been reading took a few chapters, but I love Dickens' style and caricatures. The book is only half-finished, but I enjoyed being a sleuth (and author) myself in order to imagine how I would write the rest of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 5/25/2011

    " For an unfinished book this was very fun to read (being incomplete may be a major problem, but it is the only problem). Dickens' characters, story, and humor are at their best. If he had finished it this could have turned out to be one of his best! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jsanders1379 | 5/16/2011

    " Never before have I appreciated the dry, wicked humor of Charles Dickens as in this book...going to put it on my fav shelf when I'm finished... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 4/26/2011

    " I didn't realize when I started the book that it was never finished, so I was a bit confused at the end. However, what I read, I liked. I was disappointed that we'll never know the end to the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 3/15/2011

    " So frustrating that the book was left unfinished! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morbus | 1/31/2011

    " I planned to conclude this as an school assignment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikee | 1/2/2011

    " A wonderful mystery. One problem -- it is unfinished !! Not clear who did it! One thing is certain. It would have been a great ending! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 12/10/2010

    " Classic dickens with some wonderfully drawn characters; even better because unfinished. You can make up your own ending!!
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanne | 11/19/2010

    " Just getting into this book and already feel like I'm meeting an old friend.
    I know this is going to finish without me knowing what happened to Edwin Drood and feel so frustrated as I would love to know. Need a time machine. "

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.
