] I really enjoyed "A Tale for Two Cities", and "Olver Twist" and "David Copperfield" were interesting enough. I didn't enjoy "Great Expectations" at all, though. The characters were not very believeable.
] I hope to start to read "Pickwick Papers" as soon as I can pick up a copy.
] I have never read "To Kill a Mockingbird" but I am always looking for good books to read.
Personally, I found it very hard to get started in Dickens, but once I got halfway through I usually found that I enjoyed it. David Copperfield was the only one I started that I simply couldn't finish. A Tale of Two Cities, Bleak House, and Little Dorrit are my favorites. I also liked Hard Times and Great Expectations. The only other one I have read was The Old Curiousity Shop, which was so sad and dismal that it was not very enjoyable. Soon I would like to read Our Mutual Friend. To Kill a Mockingbird is a marvelous book; I hope you enjoy it.
