The Old Curiosity ShopThe Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is another Dickens favorite.  I read it for a Ravelry group called "Knitting like the Dickens."  It is a little too sweet and a little to sentimental, but a great book despite that. Dickens' talent is to create characters that are so real, it is as if they actually  lived.  While the fact that Nell is slated for an early death is obvious from the beginning, the characters which surround her and not nearly as predictable.
