American Notes For General Circulation

Charles Dickens

Book Overview: 

American Notes for General Circulation is a travelogue by Charles Dickens detailing his trip to North America from January to June, 1842. While there he acted as a critical observer of these societies almost as if returning a status report on their progress. This can be compared to the style of his Pictures from Italy written four years later, where he wrote far more like a tourist. His American journey was also an inspiration for his novel Martin Chuzzlewit. (Summary by Wikipedia)

I could almost fix upon the moment when this truth dawned upon her mind, and spread its light to her countenance; I saw that the great obstacle was overcome; and that henceforward nothing but patient and persevering, but plain and straightforward, efforts were to be used.

'The result thus far, is quickly related, and easily conceived; but not so was the process; for many weeks of apparently unprofitable labour were passed before it was effected.

'When it was said above that a sign was made, it was intended to say, that the action was performed by her teacher, she feeling his hands, and then imitating the motion.

'The next step was to procure a set of metal types, with the different letters of the alph. . . Read More

This is one book I purchased because of its cover! I saw this illustrated hardbound beauty sitting on the roadside, priced at a pittance - and of course I had to buy it!

A Christmas Carol is, of course, one of my favourite tales ever since I read it in middle school. It must be one of the most heart

This was my first Dickens novel. I know it is kind of cheesy to make my foray into Dickens’s work by reading A Christmas Carol during the holidays but hey…whatever helps break the ice right?

This book, as most people already know, is about a tight-fisted, bitter old man named Ebenezer Scrooge. Scroo

První setkání s Dickensem. (Resp. druhé, z minulosti si nesu nedočteného Olivera Twista.) Těším se, až si přečtu některý z jeho románů. A že si některé vánoční příběhy přečtu znovu o příštích Vánocích.

Three books in one A Christmas Carol is the story, about a tight fisted bitter and selfish miser in 19th century London, who despises all that brings joy and comfort, has a plethora of adaptations but is best in it's original.
Ebenezer Scrooge is visited on Christmas Eve by three ghosts who show him
