Overview

The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens

THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD is Charles Dicken's contribution to the field of crime and its detection.

When young Edwin Drood disappears, suspicion centers on John Jasper, a drug addicted choirmaster who hungers after Drood's fiancee. There is also Neville Landless, a Ceylonese who has previously quarreled violently with the missing man.

THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD is further enhanced because it was left unfinished at the author's death. Thus the book has challenged the imagination of generations of readers.

"Certainly one of the most beautiful of all." --Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Two years ago, my school put the musical versoin of it on. It was really cool. Each night the audience choose the ending or what happens next. I fell in love with the story so I bought the book and read it cover to cover. You sohuld read it. It is fun to think and pretend what happens after the writing stops. What was the ending going to be? *****************

Don't even attempt to read this OCR copy of EDWIN DROOD. My version was downloaded from google. There are too many errors to be comprehensible.
