On the kindle version, the listing of all of Dickens's characters with page ref. numbers does not work. As this was one of the reasons for buying the book I am disappointed. The rest of the content is fine but for me this was not a good purchase.

Dickens Dictionary is a wonderful publication. A wealth of information on the works of the great author, plenty of extracts from his fiction and information on his life. The book is in excellent condition.

Format: Paperback
For the student of Dickens this is a inwallable (as Mrs Gamp would say) resource. It basically gives synopses of all Dickens' novels, and lists of characters with description. Description ranges from a few words to several paragraphs excerpted from the original. And each character entry has a list of all the chapters in which they appear, which is very useful. It's got the novels and seemingly all the short pieces as well, and Dickens' little known plays and poems. There's also the occasional illustration. At the end, the characters are indexed by name, so if you don't know what particular novel a given character is from, you can find it here. There's also an index by occupation, again very helpful. And though the list as headed as being "by occupation", there's also entries for various categories like "bachelors", "jews", or "Americans", that aren't occupations.

In all, this is a very useful book. It's a reprint of a 1900 publication, so I'd imagine there's more up-to-date books of this type, though I'm not sure if up-to-dateness is important here, as Dickens hasn't written anything new since 1900, unless I'm very much mistaken. I bought this in a remainders shop, so it was nice and cheap, and an excellent investment. A good reference work, and also with lots of nice excerpts for if you want to dip in whenever you are - again, as Mrs Gamp would say - so dispoged.
