Hey everyone, I'm the other new maintainer. My story isn't as interesting as asgt's, alas. I just started reading Dickens during kind of a rough time in my life and totally got lost in the books. I feel like I kind of owe Mr. Dickens something for helping me through those angsty teenage years (I'm now 21). That sounds sort of melodramatic or something, but it's true. My favorite of his books, and my favorite book ever, is A Tale of Two Cities. I've only read about half of his books and a handful of stories though. I really need to work on that.

Anyway, I have something to share. There's this really cute children's book I found at the library called Charles Dickens: The Man Who Had Great Expectations. It's a story of his life, with great illustrations. I scanned it a few years ago:

(Apparently the Dickenses weren't very good at keeping house. . .)

Hmmmm.... Doesn't matter to me.

I don't know those books, unfortunately. God, I really need to sit down and just read some more Dickens. On the bright side, I can claim near expertise on Oliver Twist. They used me during the rehearsal. Like, right away, the guy playing Bill turned to me and asked "What's Bill and Nancy's relationship?" because it's not ever fully explained, so I had to explain that, then our director had me, we were struggling with the courtroom scene with Dodger, search through the book to find it because I'd have better luck than the others. Whenever anyone had questions they'd come to me. It was nice, but a little irritating.
I also went through the book and found the descriptive paragraphs for some of the characters and sent that to them, which was fun. Our Dodger responded with, "Oh, that's why I'm playing Dodger! I'm short!" It was fun.

It should have said. Grrr.

I just made one, I'll change it in a moment. ^^

I do too. . . so many books, so little time! But that's awesome about your Oliver Twist knowledge, haha.
