Actually, I would recommend OT. It's got some great characters in it, and some very fine writing.
I decided to leave Little Dorrit for later. I'm still recouperating from some pretty long books, i.e. Bleak House and The Way We Live Now ;) I had no idea there was a film of Little Dorrit (thanks Marise!) but I have heard that the BBC will be screening a series of it in April 2008.
I haven't fully decided which out of the other two books it'll be yet...
Wish that I could see the BBC screening here, but alas! :(
I only learnt about it recently, when it was highly recommended to me by someone in whose taste I trust greatly.
Apparently the interesting thing about it that it is in 2 parts, the first part narrating the story from Dorrit's perspective and the 2nd part taking up the same narrative but from Arthur's point of view - 8 hours in total.
Unfortunately, the film has never come out on DVD, so I got myself the 2 videos for a few Euros via Ebay - only to realize that my video recorder does not work any more. So I'll have to wait for Christmas at my parents' home.
Maybe the BBC will have the good sense to publish the DVD now, so that people can compare it with the upcoming adaptation I am greatly looking forward too by the way, the script will be by Andrew Davies.
Apart from a couple of memorable scenes with Mr Bumble and Mrs Corney, Oliver Twist for me lacked the humour of other works like Nicholas Nickleby. I haven't read Pickwick Papers but I wonder if Dickens made a conscious effort to eliminate humour in his second novel.
