The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final novel by Charles Dickens, unfinished at the time of his death.

Written in 1890, the story is a murder mystery in which Edwin Drood is supposedly murdered. The novel investigates the characters in a distinctly Dickensian manner from the suspicious and tormented Jasper to the Reverend Crisparkle to Princess Puffer, the enigmatic Datchery and finally the gravedigger and his obnoxious but perceptive boy assistant. But who is the murderer? We will never know....

Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced. His innate comic genius and shrewd depictions of Victorian life - along with his memorable characters - have made him beloved by readers the world over.

    " 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. "

    " 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! "

    " 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... "

    " 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. "

    " So frustrating that the book was left unfinished! "

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

    " 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!!

    " 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.
