Hi! So glad to meet you!
I’ve actually been reading over all the posts on the historical fiction thread this week, and am about to jump in the conversation. Very interesting stuff over there! 😀
Both of those projects sound very neat, especially the French Revolution-ish dystopian. I think that sounds like a very clever combination, not to mention interesting. 🙂
Of Charles Dickens’ works, I’ve read A Christmas Carol, and Great Expectations. I enjoyed them both… I think at times he has a witty humor (or sarcasm) very similar to Jane Austen, which I enjoy very much. 🙂 I plan to read more of his works ASAP. I have a copy of Bleak House, and I’m interested in A Tale of Two Cities and David Copperfield.
