What is your favorite Dickens novel?

Post by PashaRu »

Mine is David Copperfield, with Bleak House coming in a very close second.

Note: A Christmas Carol is not really a novel.

Dickens is an extraordinary writer! I want to read all his novels. From what I've read my favourite is David Copperfield (but something tells me reading others won't change this, though obviously I can't be sure). I think it's a shame that in my country (Portugal) you can't find Dickens' translations in the bookshops. What are they thinking they're doing? :evil: They're simply not translating one of the best writers ever!

Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are my favorites. Don't ask me to pick between them, because I can't. :-)

I liked Great Expectations and Oliver Twist but A Tale of Two Cities has to be my favorite Dickens.
