Rly on the personality and affect of the author the forces in his life including continuing reinvention of the self that made Dickens write and keep writing The book contains a bit of literary criticism but this biography is most decidedly not of the life and works varietyEven at 1100 pages I was sorry that the book weren t twice as long It is one of those books that I hate to finish so after reaching the half way point I ration the pages I permit myself to read in a day Excellent comprehensive biography that ties in material from Dickens writing well throughout I m not a Dickens scholar by any means but to Me The Book Seems To the book seems to all the available details on his life without sensationalizing them or filling in things that can t be substantiated Now that I ve read it through once i think next time i read it i think next time I read it I do so concurrently with a re read of Dickens work instead of afterwards as a capstone which is what I did this time This is the original landmark biography of Charles Dickens It is almost as much a study of the culture and period Dickens was born into as it is a biography Viewed solely as a biography it comprehensively details his life his work and the influences he continues to have It is both imaginative and scholarly as well as being an Audiology engrossing andntertaining readNB This is not the shorter version as the blurb sug It took a month but I finished it This biography is chock a block full of information The ndnotes and bibliography were very informative as wellThe bio is a good introduction to Dickens Ackroyd stuck to the facts as he he found them Yes I will still read Dickens biographies because there are areas that I want to study Because there was so much information Ackroyd often had to just do a brief mention of some of the accounts in Dickens life If one is unfamiliar with Dickens as a person this book is a good place to start and don t be turned off by the legenth of the book Possibly the only biography of Dickens ver written that actually reads like a novel by Charles Dickens this book is immense sweeping atmospheric and richly detailed It might seem difficult to sum up the measure of a man s life in Financial Modeling and Valuation: A Practical Guide to Investment Banking and Private Equity even a thousand pages but Ackroyd capably rises to the challenge By thend the reader is left feeling both awed by Dickens genius and saddened by his incurable loneliness I read the unabridged version of this book a long time ago It s one of the best biographies I have ver read very ngaging and highly readable no small feat for a book of that length Dickens Learning Unreal® Engine iOS Game Development emerges as flawed and human like the rest of us but with a talent for turning those flaws and hisxperiences into works that change lives.
