You don't know Dickens
April 14, 2007 5:50 PM   Subscribe

There are many ways to learn about the life and times of Charles Dickens. There are numerous web pages, biographies and movies. But can any of them compare to the immersion experience of Dickens World. Don't miss the many attractions. The kids will love playing in Fagin's Den while you visit the Haunted House of Ebenezer Scrooge. And don't leave too early or you'll miss the evening's entertainment. "A series of 'burlesque' evening dinner shows are being especially created to provide a nightly menu of 'naughty delights' in the 'Free and Easy' Victorian Music Hall."

Dickens World.. Disney World.. if you can build a theme part around Brothers Grimm, why not Dickens.

I've been to BeckettWorld. It is only open at night. It is a vacant lot in the outskirts of Tuskaloosa, Alabama. There is a pit in the middle. In the pit there is a single black shoe.

In the distance, someone is playing Neil Diamond.

There's been a 700 page biography of Dickens sitting on my nightstand for the past two years that I want to read, but I feel like I need to read at least a couple of novels by him before I do that. I haven't read any Dickens since I read Oliver Twist and David Copperfield 15-20 years ago in Icelandic translation. I need to get my Dickens in gear.
