Once again, as with all the other Dickens' I read, I am transported into his world and have real feelings for all the characters. I wish all the books I read could stir my feelings like that...
Of course most of us have read it but it improves with the rereading.
And besides, ya get ta meet Rosa Dartle again, the likes of which have never been written about by any author, anytime, anywhere.
Ya Rosa Dartle!
I think you'll find David Copperfield so much more engaging & fun than Our Mutual Friend :)
I found the Penguin Classic edition to be excellent (i.e it has very useful notes at the back). Its the one with the black cover (ISBN-10: 0140439447; ISBN-13: 978-0140439441).
2)When to start?
3)How to discuss the book in a way that people will feel that we are all moving along and not spoiling it for anyone else.
My own suggestions are as follows:
1)Which book?>>David Copperfield
2)When to start?>>In One Month''s time...
3)How to discuss >>This is difficult and I believe it is impossible to please everyone. However, I think it can be very easily done ......Thematically.
That is one can discuss themes as you read the book without giving away the plot, or the actions of a certain character. Examples:
-Have you noticed yet in the bk that Dickens continually treats the topic of how the strong prey on the weak, of bullies and how much damage they cause?
-Or did you enjoy the humor in some such scene.
-Or were you schocked by his discriptions of man's inhumanity to man in the school scenes? Was it believeable?
Hopefully by speaking generally, we can allow people to proceed at their own individual pace.
