The Last Dickens is a novel by Matthew Pearl published in 2009 The first problem I had with the book was with that year 2009 I don't often read books from years beginning with the number 2 and when I do I find I'm not very good at it Paying attention that is There were none of those long sentences with lots of words that Dickens wrote in his novels this one was about him not by him Which brings me to my next thought on the whole thing and that is while I should be reading books written by Charles Dickens I should probably not be reading any about him Well I've read some biographies about him some I liked some I didn't but this isn't a biography It's a mystery with him as one of the main characters It's been a few weeks since I read the novel and since my computer is on its death bed I haven't been able to keep up with my reviews so I'm not sure I can remember all I would have said at the time I read it but here goes This book should have been split up for me anyway Some of the time we were in America with Dickens on his last trip here most of the rest of the time it is after Dickens has died and we're with Forster and others searching for the rest of his last unfinished book I wish somebody would find the rest of the novel I would love to know where Edwin Drood is myself Then upon occasion we are with Dickens's son in the Far East doing what I can't uite remember so it must not have been too terribly important I did find Forster interesting and wondered often if he was really like that I wanted to like this book than I did and you probably will like it than I did I guess I just would rather read Dickens than read about Dickens That's all of a review I can give you typing on my phone how anyone learns to do this using their thumbs is beyond me it will be nice to some day have a computer I can use all my fingers to type with but for now I'm on to the next book Happy reading
