What is your favourite, Charles Dickens novel and why?
It is that time of year when I like to sit and read 'A Christmas Carol'.
What is your favourite Dickens novel?
As much as I like 'A Christmas Carol', I think my favorite novel by Dickens is 'The Chimes', a story about an old man who stands in front of a church every day, waiting for job offers. It is a very good story with few characters.
My personal favourite is "Great Expectations". Pip is just so human, and the whole business with Estella and Miss Haversham is so romantic.
"A Christmas Carol" is my favorite Dickens novel as well. For one thing, I find the story very appealing. However, it is also my favorite because it is one of Dickens' shorter works. I love pretty much all of his stories, but most of his novels are so long and drawn out that I find them difficult to read. "A Christmas Carol", on the other hand, is a perfect length and is a book I can read over and over again (especially this time of year).
My personal favourite is Oliver Twist. It offers a very visceral, concentrated account of how difficult it was to grow up as an orphan in those times. The characters are all very well developed and it has a very satisfying ending.

What is your favorite, fun, feel good novel? Right now I feel most fondly about Frangipani by Celestine Vaite. Her simple prose and heart warming stories about Tahiti just hit the spot. Highly recommend...
