Meet the Author

Geboren am 7.2.1812 in Landport bei Portsmouth. Als sein Vater 1823 ins Schuldgefängnis in London kam, mußte Dickens bereits in der Jugend als Hilfsarbeiter arbeiten. Nach unregelmäßigem Schulbesuch wurde er 1826 Anwaltsgehilfe und arbeitete als Parlamentsstenograph.

Als Reporter beim "Morning Chronicle" begann er seine Skizzen, die in Buchform als "Pickwick Papers" veröffentlicht wurden und ihn berühmt machten. Von 1836 bis 1841 arbeitete er parallel an verschiedenen Romanen. Es folgten Amerikareisen (1841/42) und 1868.

Dickens starb am 9.6.1870 im Alter von 58 Jahren an einem Schlaganfall.

I read this book many years ago before I bought a NOOK. I intend to buy it for my NOOK soon. This book is a synopsis of all the Kings of England and a description of what happened in their reign. I was surprised to learn of all the foreigners who came to England over the centuries and took over for a time. Romans, Danes and Normans and others all came there and at times took command over much of the country. It is certainly worth reading for adults even though the title makes one think it is only for young readers.

Google books version of a defaced copy, withdrawn from the public library. Very poor text recognition, so that the text is garbled and unreadable.

No offense, but Charles Dickens is one of the most famous writers the world has known so far. If you think this book is boring, you most likely aren't intelligent enough to comprehend it. Do you even know why he's important? I advise you to Google him.
