Have You Heard of This Guy....

Charles Dickens? He's a pretty good writer. Just finished "A Tale of Two Cities" and was really surprised that I liked it so much. A historical novel set against the French Revolution? Sounds borrringgg. But the novel is quite engrossing, and now I know why people still refer to and read Charles Dickens. His voice, subtle humor, and outlook feel quite contemporary.
