[bksvol-discuss] Re: Moby Dick

I am still partial to Oliver Twist, smile.

But David Copperfield is absolutely wonderful too.

He was a wonderful portrayer of the "working class" in England, which a lot 
of authors didn't want to touch in his day.

In my opinion, where Dickens really shines is in A Tale of Two Cities.  It
is a masterpiece even with the descripptions.  Also David Copperfield.

Yep Charles Dickens also got paid by the word for a lot of his novels.
Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers, and Bleak House for three.

And Les Miserabs by Victor Hugo, was originally a set, and so he goes into
graphic and extreme detail about the Battle at Waterloo, sigh.

That's interesting. I didn't know that.

I liked ths story when I read it in college. I just
didn't like the dissertation on whales, which, of
course, is one of the things that's supposed to be
make it an important book.
