Item description for The Queen of Hearts by Charles Dickens...

At the last word his voice rose, and he grew restless on a sudden. I saw him shudder on the straw; his withered face became distorted, and he threw up both his hands with a quick hysterical gasp. They struck against the bottom of the manger under which he lay, and the blow awakened him. I had just time to slip through the door and close it before his eyes were fairly open, and his senses his own again.

More About Charles Dickens


Charles Dickens Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation, but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and "slave" factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and died in 1870.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Queen of Hearts?

Another Wilkie Collins book  Aug 23, 2007
I have written a review of a Wilkie Collins book already, and though I didn't like this book quite as much as I did the last one I read, still it was enjoyable. In this story an older man, Griffith, lives in the country with his two elder brothers. They live a quiet life in an old house. Thier life changes when a young woman whom he had been co-guardian to , comes to his home to stay for 6 weeks in order to inherit her dead fathers' money upon her 21st birthday. With only a short time left to the young womans visit, Griffith recices a letter from his son who is going to sail back home. In the letter his son reveals that he is in love with the young woamn, Jessie. In order to keep Jessie there in time for his son to come back and declare his feelings, Griffith and his 2 brothers write stories to keep her entertained. The contents of much of the book are the brother's stories. The book brings to mind Scheherezade, who told her stories-like Aladdin and the lamp-to her husband to preserve her life. It is an enjoyable read, and easy to get through.
