I'm glad the reviewer did mention Shakespeare, though. I don't hear a lot of people complaining about him, and his writings have been around longer than Dickens, Austen, or Bronte. :P

The interesting thing is, more lesser known books like Little Dorrit, Cranford, and North & South are among the most popular of the recent adaptations. If that's any indication, it seems like obscure classics would be well-received, even if they are period or "bonnet" dramas.

I agree with you, we really can't blame them for writing such awesome literature! :)

Wow- is it true; can it be? I had no idea there was an entire Dickens *underground* on the Internet..... It's almost too much to be hoped for :-)
Thank you for stopping by my blog - I am a lover of all things Dickens!
AND- I think that as long as they do a decent job of adapting his works to the screen, I will keep sitting and watching new Dickens movies with delight. * and Jane Eyre of course :-)

Welcome, Ann! "Dickens underground" -- now that's a pretty cool nickname. :-)
