  Robert Gottlieb, former Knopf editor, New Yorker editor, and lifelong Dickens reader, gives us the 10 best books from the master. For more on the book, check out our Q&A with Gottlieb. It may be that Dickens chose to center his novel on the wealthy -middle class rather than on the lower classes he sought to defend because he realized that most of his Victorian readers would come from the middle classes and that very few of his readers would come from the lower classes. By centering his book on characters with whom his readers.

For example “Ammu’s Road” now has “a small sunny meadow”, unlike its previous emptiness, its “wilder sort of walk”.

  Personally, I enjoy Charles Dickens' books better than Thomas Hardy's books. All of Charles Dickens' books have quirky and engaging characters, unique villains and are plain unforgettable. As with any author, there are some of his works I enjoy less, like The Old Curiosity Shop and some I enjoy more like A Tale of Two Cities and A Christmas. Slater is probably the world’s most renowned living Dickens expert. If you want to read Tomalin, read her ground-breaking “The Invisible Woman,” which brought Ellen Ternan’s story out into the full light of day. Or read her bio of Thomas Hardy, better than her book on Dickens in just about every way. “Becoming Dickens” is superb.
