  • Drood: A Novel

    Just as he did in The Terror, Dan Simmons draws impeccably from history to create a gloriously engaging and terrifying narrative. Based on the historical details of Charles Dickens' life and narrated by Wilkie Collins (Dickens' friend, frequent collaborator, and Salieri-style secret rival), Drood explores the still-unsolved mysteries of the famous author's last years and may provide the key to Dickens's final, unfinished work: The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

    Debra says: "Mesmerizing! Hypnotizing! Fabulous!"
    "Good story and great narrator."

    I enjoyed this over The Terror by Simmons, but what really stood out was Simon Prebble's narration. Wow, he captured the emotions and various stages of each of the character's lives. I felt I was taken away to 19th C. England. It was awesome!
