    Some of the books i have read it and i found them awsome!
    My favourite English 19th century novelist is Dickens because he gave the complete icon of the 19th century Victorian Age!

    Charles Dickens
    February 7, 1812 - June 9, 1870

    Indeed; Dickens is a faultless author.

    Dickens' style is unique - well-written, immaculate, and original. He captures the very essence of the Victorian man, and capitalises that aspect through his works.

    There is so much to say about the man, but that would be a whole new story to tell

    A list of his finest novels:

    - The Pickwick Papers (1836) - Oliver Twist (1837–1839)
    - Nicholas Nickleby (1838–1839)
    - The Old Curiosity Shop (1840–1841)
    - Barnaby Rudge (1841)
    - The Christmas books:
    o A Christmas Carol (1843)
    o The Chimes (1844)
    o The Cricket on the Hearth (1845)
    o The Battle of Life (1846)
    - Martin Chuzzlewit (1843–1844)
    - Dombey and Son (1846–1848)
    - David Copperfield (1849–1850)
    - Bleak House (1852–1853)
    - Hard Times (1854)
    - Little Dorrit (1855–1857)
    - A Tale of Two Cities (1859)
    - Great Expectations (1860–1861)
    - Our Mutual Friend (1864–1865)
