Perhaps more salient, though, is Dickens's influence on Freud, Dostoevsky, and-Kafka. Without them, Dickens might have come to seem a mere early practitioner of the novel, crude in comparison to successors such as George Eliot and Henry James. With them, we see how he looks forward to our time.

For a Dickens fan, such as myself, this book is great. Lots of Dickens trivia and an overview of his books. Gives me a better understanding of his books and the times in which they were written.

I liked this book a lot, and I read passages of it constantly now, since I am a large fan of Dickens. This book is easy to read and to navigate. I enjoy especially the parts like "Twistania" which show some of what people have done and said in response to the books. The one problem I had was with the sections which said that Great Expectations was a novel about mastrubation and homosexuality. Yes, perhaps there is much homoerotic behavior in it, but that doesn't mean that the people in the novel want to have sex with eachother. I find the idea of the deathbed scene with Magwitch and Pip being embaressing because the characters were holding hands is ridiculous. The man was dying, for crissake! I think people really need to ease up and see that most of the same sex relationships in this novel are ones of frienship (Herbert and Pip) or father-son relationship (Pip and Joe, Pip and Magwitch). However, this was the only part of the book that bothered me, I otherwise think this book is great for any Dickensan.

Unless you are an academic or must read everything on Dickens, you will not need to read another book on the subject. His life, his literature, his complicated relationships, and his genius are all on view here. The book is both fun to read and to look at. Why don't more publishers take the time, effort and imagination to put together books as charming as this? Also while this is not a debunking treatment, it is no whitewash either. She has dusted off the Victorian icon and brought him back to life.

This book is a lively companion to the works and life of Charles Dickens, and a splendid read in itself.
