A Dickens time of year January 20, 2012

Throughout this month, BBC radio 4 and BBC radio 4 extra are broadcasting the audio dramatization of Charles Dickens novels. Radio drama are my favourite form of entertainment. It flies the imagination to a place of childlike wonder. The best part for me is the range of voices and accents. Others may be more interested in the music or sound effects. I have discovered many times and met many character all thanks to this world of sound.

Back to Dickens!

A Tale of Two Cities: I missed the first episodes so I didn’t listen to this one. Several years ago I attempted to read this book but it conquered me. I intend to begin again before the leaves grow green.

David Copperfield: I love this book and have read it several times. Picture my excitement when it came on. An hour every day for two weeks. Life is good!

The Old Curiosity Shop: In my mind Little Nell and merged with Little Dorrit. Three weeks in I have successfully separated the two storylines.

The Mumbai Chuzzlewits: This was Martin Chuzzlewit set in modern-day India. It was fresh adaptation of the original story. I like.

Hard Times and Mrs Lirriper began this week.

This post isn’t meant to be a review just general news.

I’m currently reading A Tale of Two Cities and I’m loving it! Written by Dickens I also read Oliver Twist and I read about 10% of David Copperfield, but due to my horrible habit of reading more than one book at the same time I eventually stopped. I intend to restart it when I’m through with this one!
