Has anyone read the Pickwick papers?
Generally I like Dickens, but this one seems to be of a slightly lower quality than his usual work.
Does it get better, or am I justified in just giving up?
His first novel, so he was still learning to be a novelist. "Slightly lower quality" is kind. Not much improvement if I remember rightly.

Out of interest do you write?

speaking of vampires, have you guys read I am Legend? it's an amazing book. yo-less, i don't know if you got a reply to the question you asked when you first started the thread, but the answer is yes, there is a sequel to When the Wind blows, it's called The Lake House and it's also amazing. When the Wind Blows was my favourite book for so long, but then Kelley Armstrong came along.

Has anyone read 'Kushiel's Trilogy' by Jacqueline Carey??

I gave it to my flatmate to read, who doesn't really like to read and now i have her hooked. Hard as it is to choose a favourite anything this set has to be my favourite book(s).

sorry: I meant there's not much improvement in Pickwick. Dickens got much better. Bleak House andOur Mutual Friend are very good. An influence on dickens and Pickwick especially, though I think he's better than pickwick is Surtees: Mr Facey Romford's hounds snd Mr Sponge's Sporting Tour. They also explain a lot about the English obsession with fox-hunting.

Out of interest do you write?
No: still catching up on my reading.

If I didn't already have so much reading to catch up on myself, I'd say I'd read them all, as it is, just point out the 'best' one.

Whatever happened to 'staylors list of excellent words', I had a mini campaign to bring back the word huzzah on it, I think.

I think it is worth reading, it's mostly become something to read since so many people are talking about it. Over-hyped I think but still a fairly decent book.
