you say Dickens like I'm supposed to defend him. there aren't many people in academic circles who will really praise Dickens as a writer. he is often sentimental and over-done.
also why don't you try something new instead of repeatedly carping on one of the most obvious examples of victorian literature? you almost bang on about hating Dickens as if he proves that 2,600 years of western lit are a giant sham. why not try and give 150 pages of someone else a go and stop being such a sad pathetic little man? you might actually learn – or feel – something new.
