4.0 von 5 Sternen Dickens' Dying Words
If Dickens had managed to finish this, it may have been yet another masterpiece. It is full of convincing characters, dark images, dark humour, and memorable passages. Through Jasper, we are able to see a side of Dickens himself. In one of Dickens' Christmas Books that takes place at an Inn, a character (who I suspect is a representation of Dickens) himself is jealous...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Prepare to Be Frustrated!
I say this not because the novel is bad -- it's actually quite good -- but because it was left unfinished; Dickens died while writing this novel. I was prepared to be frustrated that I would never know how the mystery was solved, but the novel ends before you really get to know what the mystery is! Edwin Drood disappears and is presumed dead, and Dickens makes it look...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dickens' Dying Words, 2. April 2000
If Dickens had managed to finish this, it may have been yet another masterpiece. It is full of convincing characters, dark images, dark humour, and memorable passages. Through Jasper, we are able to see a side of Dickens himself. In one of Dickens' Christmas Books that takes place at an Inn, a character (who I suspect is a representation of Dickens) himself is jealous of a character named Edwin. Interestingly this repeats here. It is also interesting that after Dickens and his wife seperated, he fell in love with a younger woman. Jasper is attracted to a younger woman. It is also striking that in his dying written words, there are many images of graveyards. Even though Dickens died before he could finish this, it is an interesting work. There are many elements that make this book worth looking at. (Interesting dialogues, convincing characters, comical touches, good and dark images, a representation of Dickens himself, etc.) These are also Dickens' final words, and for that reason alone, this book deserves a special place in the museum of literature.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting, this one, 23. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This was a slightly unusual novel for Dickens, a bit more dark, serious, and short like "Great Expectations" had been, with the previously unused topics of drug use, orientalism, and the church making appearances. It is of course his last and unfinished novel, though as the introduction and notes of the excellent Penguin edition make clear, there is little doubt about how it might have proceeded, and it's not so much a "mystery" novel as we have come to understand the term. For heaven's sake, don't get some edition that has been "finished" by someone else. What we have here is the dark work of a mature stylist, who still has the gifts of comedy and character. The obsessive nature of Jasper's love mirrors the character of Bradley Headstone in "Our Mutual Friend."

I say this not because the novel is bad -- it's actually quite good -- but because it was left unfinished; Dickens died while writing this novel. I was prepared to be frustrated that I would never know how the mystery was solved, but the novel ends before you really get to know what the mystery is! Edwin Drood disappears and is presumed dead, and Dickens makes it look as if a certain person is guilty of his murder. Of course, Dickens would never have been so obvious, so it has to be a red herring. In addition to the murder, a person who is obviously in disguise just barely appears on the scene before the story abruptly ends, leaving no clue as to who this person may be. The novel is well-written and intriguing, but without an ending, it's a little frustrating!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth Reading, 5. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
This books starts off in eye opening present tense; not exactly standard operating procedure for a 19th Century author. And though Dickens switches to his regular use of tense later on, by that time he has ensnared you in this wonderfully mature work. Beware, this novel is unfinished. There are not enough clues to even guess how this story will come out. But it is worth reading just for the skill of writing; I suppose similar to watching the first two-thirds of a great game of chess. It is not light and airy like Oliver Twist, and probably would be best enjoyed after reading at least one of his other novels.
