Dickens timeline, from David Perdue's Charles Dickens page.

My favourite Dickens? It's also my favourite novel read so far - "Great Expectations". Not the most typical - tighter, less rambling, virtually no caricatures. "Bleak House" runs a close second - it is rambling in the best sort of way, and is stuffed full of caricatures.

Do you have a spam message here John? (see message here about timber).

Not totally convinced about the point you're making with your Dickens timeline, but interesting nevertheless.

I agree with you about Great Expectations. I read it first when I was (too) young, and I remember being absolutely terrified of Magwitch in the graveyard.
