I am a fan of Charles Dickens! I read few of his books! Tale of two cities was the text for the English Literature for me and I made a detailed study of it! I visited his museum in London!

Huge Dickens fan and I knew these things about him. His second raven was addicted to stripping paint off anything and eating it. As paint was lead based, guess what it died of? A raven called Grip featured in his novel 'Barnaby Rudge'. Also, two ravens were gifted to the Tower of London for the Queen's jubilee. One was called Jubilee and the other was called Grip in honour of Dickens.

Dickens is very hard to read today,and sometimes it's better to say so,than to pretend you are a member of the litterati! Walter Scott is another.But in their day,they were brilliant.

Love Charles Dickens. Saw some of his books in the British Museum, in their literary section. I have a copy of a painting, called Dickens dream his friend Balzac gave him. He’s in a chair dreaming of all the books he has written. My only regret is I didn’t know you could tour his home in London. I visited London, four times over twenty years and had no idea. Saw it in the movie, Hereafter. Wish I had known. Favorite books, A Christmas Carol, Great Expectations, Oliver and A Tale of Two Cities.
