    This book was my first attempt at reading a full length Dickens novel Unfortunately, I didn t realize until I d got home from the library that it was a collection of short stories, a collective round robin of Victorian literary minds This didn t detract me though, and I m very glad Though Dickens only contributed a few short chapters to the novel, he orchestrated the whole scheme, and his humor and affinity for the supernatural was present throughout the work This was a very enjoyable read This book was my first attempt at reading a full length Dickens novel Unfortunately, I didn t realize until I d got home from the library that it was a collection of short stories, a collective round robin of Victorian literary minds This didn t detract me though, and I m very glad Though Dickens only contributed a fe...
