"So do the shadows of our own desires sand between us and our better angles, and thus their brightness is eclipsed."
Um, how does this have a one-star rating? Are you people drunk on cheap gin? A lesser known Dickens novel, this is nonetheless one of his more provocative and compelling books. Inspired by the Gordon Riots, which were a series of anti-Catholic uprisings, "Barnaby Rudge" (1841) displays Dickens's usual mastery of multiple plots and a diverse cast of characters. Like Shakespeare, he has a sympathy for the common man, but a fear of the mob. This is one of his most political books and almost wholly without the sentimentality that sometimes mars his work. Like many of his novels, it was serialized. Get the illustrated version if you can.
