Challenge Complete: Classic Double

With the reading and reviewing of Drood, and The Last Dickens, I have completed the Classic Double Challenge 2012. The aim was to read one classic and an off-shoot of it. The classic that I read was Charles Dickens’ The Mystery of Edwin Drood and then read not one but two books inspired by it: Matthew Pearl’s The Last Dickens and Dan Simmons’ Drood.

More than completing the challenge, I am relieved at finishing Drood, considering it took me almost six months to complete the ‘Monster’.

I enjoyed the challenge and hope to participate in it next year too. If you want to participate in it, you can do so over here.
