    1. Es un relato históricamente correcto de los acontecimientos de 1780 en Londres. Dickens lo decora, como siempre, con su sentimentalismo y melodrama, pero introduce, como siempre, una serie de personajes inolvidables y complejos.


    2. After a lifetime of knowing about this work only "Here comes Poe with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,/Three-fifths of him genius, and two-fifths pure fudge," I finally read this, sometimes called Dickens' least-known novel; and almost immediately started rereading it. True, I had a research reason for immediate rereading; but find it holds up better, perhaps, the second time around. True, Dickens is particularly weak with his female characters in this one, most of them being incredibly tedious as [...]


    3. Not one of Dickens well known titles. A dark story that lays the characters and their surroundings in great detail. Not the easiest of language to digest quickly but beautifully constructed and a story that keeps moving and makes the reader want to move along just to see who gets their well deserved come uppance. Not a summer beach read, more a winter's evening spread over a couple of weeks.

The cast of characters is diverse, as usual, and bring different social circumstances to the Gordon Riots in 1780 England. The chapters devoted to the Riot itself are packed with action that kept me reading far past my normal quitting time. More importantly, Dickens paints a vivid picture of both religious persecution and the [...]


    6. This is the last of all the Dickens's novels (including the five shorter Christmas Books) that I have either read or attempted. I had saved it until the last because it has not been held in very high esteem either by the critics or the reading public. I was pleasantly surprised.Whereas there are several Dickens novels that I was unable to finish (namely, The Old Curiosity Shop, Martin Chuzzlewit, Dombey and Son, Little Dorrit, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and all the Christmas Books except A Ch [...]
