5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Dickens Biography, very readable!, 14 Dec 2011
This review is from: Charles Dickens (Paperback)
This very readable but completely comprehensive biography, written by the foremost Dickensian doyen of our times, is an excellent and fascinating read. Michael Slater manages to cover all aspects of the amazing life of this extraordinary man, with an emphasis on the writings of Charles Dickens, without leaving reader feeling overwhelmed: no small feat! Slater's straight forward style is very accessible, and he gently helps the reader navigate the many people, places, and things Dickens encountered and influenced. Those new to the life of Dickens will be astounded by the man's energy and the scope of his actions, and those on familiar ground will appreciate Dickens's writings being placed in the context of his life and his Victorian times, so clearly and insightfully, by this brilliant scholar. A great gift for any discerning reader!
