One thought on “The Mystery of Edwin Drood (Oxford World’s Classics)

  1. Al llarg dels anys, havia anat llegint totes les novel les de Dickens en angl s, i aquesta era l nica que em mancava La seva lectura no m ha decebut en absolut, i crec que si Dickens hagu s pogut acabar la novel la ens hauria deixat una obra mestra absoluta L estructura s menys complexa que en les seves obres immediatament anteriors, i els personatges, especialment en Jasper, estan a l al ada dels millors creats per Dickens Quina pena que tot s estronqui quan manca la darrera meitat Qualsevol pr [...]


  2. I m a huge Dickens fanhave reread everyone of his novels BUT had never read the unfinished Edwin Drood It seemed to me, why bother But in my old age, I took a crack at itowing Dickens was dying when he wrote it, I didn t know what to expect It s very different from his other works, leaner, sparser, darker But the Master is still there, making me want to keep reading and know how it resolved This finished version, published during the bicentennial of Dicken s birth, really is good The author, a r [...]


  3. Like many people, I m sure, I read The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and wanted to know how it ended If it hadn t been a mystery, things might have been different, but we are left with the disappearance of a healthy, optimistic young man, whose uncle lusts after the young man s fianc e not knowing their engagement has been severed We are also made aware that the uncle has an opium addiction, and the woman who operates the opium den he frequents may have overheard things he said while under the influen [...]


  4. I knew at the outset that Dickens died before he had the chance to finish this novel, but I didn t realize how incredibly frustrated I was going to be because of it It seems that he was just getting somewhere, and that there was going to be some climactic action coming up shortly, and then poof No book But on the other hand, it was so good getting to that point, and as noted, I am aware that The Mystery of Edwin Drood was unfinished, so I can t say that I was all that frustrated, really It s th [...]


  5. I understand the frustration of the reviewer below I have uploaded a photo of Oxford s Our Mutual Friend side by side with their Mysery of Edwin Drood As you ca see, the font size of Drood is smaller than that of Our Mutual Friend which is the norm for Oxford Classics The print is often faded in a line or two of pages of Drood as well, unlike the evenly always clear, very legible ink of Our Mutual Friend If you have good eyes, the smaller font size and inking problems should not be a big problem [...]


  6. Dickens does it again Here is a good mystery well written I was hesitant to read an unfinished book but became interested when I saw a pbs adaptation on video Like other adaptations they created an ending, which I liked The book left everything open ended, but led down a different path There are themes in the story that are timeless a man obsessed about a young woman that doesn t like him and starts to fear him, jealousy, drug abuse, child abuse, and so on I wasn t sure where some of the charact [...]
