5-0 out of 5 stars Absorbing and Still Politically Relevant
I had read most of the Dickens novels, some more than once, but I'd always overlooked Barnaby Rudge. When I finally read it I was amazed it had taken me so long. It turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected from the blurb on the book.

Like all Dickens' novels, the characters are drawn to show the nature of human beings, and he does it so well, the characters could be set in modern day and the story would still work. We see the shifty lecherous rogue who covets the beautiful young lady, the dedicated hangman, and the patriotic family man. We see troubled family relationships: mother and son, father and daughter, and father and son. Most important of all, we see the title character, a golden-hearted idiot whose simple-minded exuberance makes him a ready-made pawn for the devious and evil manipulators who stand to profit from division and resentment between Catholics and Protestants.

Perhaps the most timeless thing about this novel is the willful manufacturing of resentment between the two primary social political groups of the time. You could simply replace the terms Catholic and Protestant with Liberal and Conservative and you'd be telling our modern story. Turn on the nightly news and you will see a modern-day Barnaby Rudge there enthusiastically reciting the talking points of some divisive talk-show host, all the while completely oblivious that he is but a pawn dutifully serving a sinister master. I'm glad I waited until now to read this tale of Dickens because it's such a timely reminder of human impulse toward the mob mentality.

Barnaby Rudge is an ever present reminder that if we lose our ability to think to think critically, we our own identity and our values will be consumed to serve the desires of someone else.

3-0 out of 5 stars Boundless Profundity
The Raven dialog drives this novel.I specifically enjoyed the nibbling, figurative and literal, upon Barnaby's shoulder.A delicious pile of words.

3-0 out of 5 stars One of his lesser works, I'm told
I've never read Charles Dickens before, outside of having read "A Christmas Carol" in school. I decided, a year or so ago, to read some Dickens and see what I thought. This book wouldn't have hooked me, but I'd already read enough stuff to know that this isn't his best. Though it wasn't that good, there were elements of it that were interesting, and that kept me going long enough that I finished it.

Barnaby Rudge is a simple man with a talking crow. His mother looks after him. He lives in a world full of people who are more or less friends, or at least acquaintances. Among these are a tavern keeper and his son, a locksmith and his wife and daughter, the locksmith's apprentice, and the locksmith's maid. The book spends several hundred pages on exposition of these characters, with you getting to know more and more about them as the story progresses. The interplay of the characters, with the author interweaving so many plotlines, is apparently a trademark of Dickens, and he puts it on display here, using it for all it's worth. At about the halfway point of the book the plot begins to form, as one of the secondary characters, a British nobleman named Gordon, decides to foment anti-Catholic sentiment because it will bring him political prominence. Of course riots will result, of course people will be killed, and of course Gordon thinks nothing of this, because he's advancing his political career at the same time. Barnaby and the other central characters in the book are caught up in the riots, and their aftermath, and that forms the main plot of the story.

I generally enjoyed this book, but I thought the exposition too long (by modern standards anyway) the plot itself too wordy, and the ending I'm afraid was predictable. What saves the book is the characters. On that logic alone I might recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dickens talent lives on
I began to read Charles Dickens when I was in my teen years.There is very few authors with such incite in to human character, and the ability to paint a scene that puts our current crop of authors to shame.The present day secular media from film, and books can never compete with a genius for the true art of literature.There are some authors today that might present a popular novel but they usually fall flat and unfulfilling once the book is read.There are always a few whose talent trancend politics, sensuality, and sensationalism.When you get tired of popularism Dickens is the author that fills your mind with memorable scenes and characters who go beyond the present politically correct novel.Dickens brings to life the morality, nobleness, and virtues that an author who lives beyond his century passes on.This novel is one of those that will be one that you will read again, maybe even more than a couple of times. G.K. Chesterton wrote the most profound and honest critisms of Dickens works.I suggest reading Chesterton for incite into Dickens.Barnaby Rudge could be a good start for a reading habit of honestly absorbing and entertaining literature.Put Patterson or Clancy aside and learn to enjoy the talent that will out live both of them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Important Dickens work for today
This year, 2010, the Riverside, CA Dicken's Festival has selected Barnaby Rudge as its featured work for its weekend-long presentation. In my view, nothing could be more timely.
Most people have not read this book which was never as popular as some of Dickens' other novels, such as Oliver Twist or David Copperfield.However, this historical novel of a tragic period in English history of the late 18th century, was early on a project Dickens wanted to present.Work on it predated his widely popular Pickwick Papers, on a much more serious subject.
It was the religious riots of 1780, precipitated by an unstable member of the House of Lords, Lord George Gordon, who wanted to suppress catholicism, even among members of his own monied class.The cause of "No Popery" was taken up by mob rule which resulted in a horrendous amount of death and loss of property among all the people of London, including the burning of Newgate prison, Bedlam, the hospital for the insane, and many houses of rich and poor alike.
As in all Dickens books, there is a cause that the author wants to present and explore.And this one seems to be an analysis of how mob rule occurs and how people who have little factual information destroy and disrupt both the rule of law and the faculty of common sense.If this were only a historical condition, the novel might be of interest.But, we can easily see how today around the world, the incitement of a few with dubious motives can destroy and disorient the lives of the many.Find a discussion group and read it together! ...

3-0 out of 5 stars book vs movie
Having watched the Hollywood version way back in the 70's, when I was a teenager, I found this an interesting read. It gives you a glimpse into conditions of the time period, and the life of those people in early England. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those that love history.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Novel by Dickens
Oliver Twist is the best novel by Dickens.Out of all the very enjoyable books by Dickens, I think Oliver Twist just has that certain wow factor that keeps the reader hooked from page one.This novel, along with The Christmas Carol, are great read alouds that both adults and children can enjoy.I've read this book at least a dozen times, but Oliver Twist seems to get better with time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Late and Wrong
The item shipped was not the one listed on the website.It was a different edition.

It was ordered with express delivery but delivered over a week later.

Both of these had a bad impact on a college student.My daughter at Texas Tech will probably go ahead and buy from the bookstore.There was a particular versioon they were looking for Peguin Classics but another version was delivered.

I have purchase from you before but didn't have this type of experience and I really don't have the time to try to make phone calls or whatever to try to get my freihgt costs returned but I would be happy to return the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful page turner
Cons:L-O-N-G.As another reviewer stated, if Dickens can say it in 10 words, he'll go with 50.

Pros:Strong character development, suspenseful story, interesting social commentary, the Oxford World Classic edition offers a bunch of educational commentary - so, I read it and learned about the laws Dickens didn't care for, the relationship between himself and the illustrator, etc.

As an accountant, if something isn't able to hold my interest, I'll put it down and try something else.With Dickens, I can truly say that my interest was completely held!

5-0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed
Once upon a time, as a child, I read "Oliver Twist" in an issue of Classic Comics. Once upon a time, as a student, I worked through a reading list of paperback Dickens novels that, for whatever reason, did not include "Oliver Twist." When I returned to this early Dickens novel, I read it on a Kindle. I am sorry it took me so long to get from the comic book to the real thing.

The plot of "Oliver Twist is well known, so let me mention some other things that a grown up reader might enjoy. For one thing, the novel is an angry commentary on how a society treats its poor. The baby farms for orphans, the workhouses, and the apprentice situations have not lost their power to shock.The scene where Oliver dares to ask for more gruel is rightly famous, but there are many scenes that detail the routine near starvation of those dependent on "porochial" generosity. Along with these scenes go the overseers: the beadle, Mr. Bumble, and his estimable wife, both of whom are regularly depicted eating and drinking their fill. The fact that they are one step removed from poverty only increases their contempt for those beneath them.

The London in which Oliver eventually finds himself is equally vivid, drawn from those dank nooks and corners Dickens observed as a young man as he went about his work as a reporter. He also knew well Newgate Prison, where Fagin spends his final days; Dickens had already written about it in an earlier sketch.

Another aspect of the novel that is gripping is the way Dickens depicts abusive relationships between men and the women who are love them. The relationship of Bill Sikes and Nancy is the most famous, but it is paralleled by the connection between the snitch Noah Claypole and his subservient Charlotte (both of whom torment Oliver when he is apprenticed at Sowerberry the coffin-maker's). Dickens humorously reverses this dynamic when he depicts Mrs. Bumble ruling over the craven Mr. Bumble, but we understand that this is the exception, rather than the rule. Oliver's existence is, to some extent, the result of the unequal relationship between his father and his mother.

The character of the diabolical Fagin induces an unease in a modern reader that Dickens's readers mostly did not feel. He is almost always called "the Jew" and is, in accordance with the stereotype, preoccupied with money. One of Dickens's biographers, Michael Slater, gives an account of a Jewish reader who wrote to Dickens to object to this.

Don't miss this novel. The progress of the little parish boy, Oliver Twist, suggests that a society is only as admirable as its compassion for the least among it.
