Good luck! Best of luck with your new mystery novel The Solitary House. I am so looking forward to reading it.
Like Like. I read that the writers of the series cut the list to just 80 characters! There is just something about the writing style that I enjoy. I think one of my favorites of his is Great Expectations more because I just love the character of Miss Havisham. I hope to be able to see the new adaption of it soon. Gillian Anderson is a great actress so I bet she really does well with the part.
Huge fan of Dickens.
