The Mystery of Edwin Drood - Charles Dickens

Postby Ice.Maiden » 14 Jul 2014, 19:12

Though the novel is named after the character Edwin Drood, the story focuses on Drood’s uncle, choirmaster John Jasper, who is in love with his pupil, Rosa Bud. The novel was unfinished at the time of Dickens’ death and his ending for it remains unknown.

Quite a few books've been left unfinished, but very often other authors've completed them. Wonder what happened in this case?

hell knows, not read it, his novels are brilliant but reading Oliver Twist at school put me off him for a bit as the print was so small..
