Poorly written biography of a great English writer
Reviewed in the United States on January 27, 2015
I have purchased many of the "Who Was...." series of books for my grandchildren and, for the most part, thought they were well written albeit at a preteen's level. I wish that I could say the same for "Who Was Charles Dickens" but I can't. This book was so disjointed and poorly written that I'm sure that Charles Dickens himself must be spinning in his grave. It's too bad because Dickens' biography deserves far better treatment than this sophmoric effort.
