I'm an avid reader, writer, and blogger. I have a diverse taste in books, everything from new releases to classics.

Hard Times

Hard Times - Charles Dickens, Frederick Busch 3.75 stars, maybe 3.5.

I love Charles Dickens, but I don't think this is his best work. So far, my favorites are Great Expectations and David Copperfield, but I still have several Dickens novels on my to-read list. Dickens is the total package - great writer and storyteller with excellent characterization and dialogue. I love how he excels at every aspect of writing. This is something I don't see often in modern writers. As an aspiring writer, there's so much I can learn from reading his novels. If you've never read Dickens before, I recommend that you start with one of the two I mentioned above.
