Mary Shelley started writing Frankenstein when she was only 18. The themes in the book are still relevant today and I hope kids are still having to read it in school! One of my favorites!

One of my favorites. Dickens incorporates several genres in this novel (mystery, crime, romance) yet tells a cohesive and endlessly entertaining story. Pip, who narrates and stars as protagonist, teaches us much about what's important in life as he navigates his rags-to-riches existence and deals with the trials and tribulations of family, love, and money.

Great Expectations. Every once in a while I pick up a classic - it makes me sound intelligent! A little hard to follow some of the dialect, but an enjoyable read.

David Copperfield ... What a writer Dickens is! Such an imagination and a master at description. His characters are either lovable or despicable.

Great Expectations (abridged) by Charles Dickens -- The one I read had a different cover.

Dickens is one of my favorite authors, and this is probably my favorite work from him--probably because of the treatment it gets in Jasper Fforde novels.

Beginning and ending with some of English literature's most famous lines, Charles Dickens' novel thrives on tension and conflict, all set against the bloody backdrop of the French Revolution. The novel's sense of urgency and intimacy will draw you in and propel you through one of the most tumultuous times in history.

The story of fate, circumstance and love....haunting characters you will never forget

My kids are 9 and 12 now and have not been required to read Dickens yet. How can this be? Up there with Shakespeare as one of the greatest story tellers ever. My third time reading and it still enthralls.
