What a treat to discover Charles Dickens' A Child's History of England. I enjoyed Dickens style. I recently read Jane Austen's History of England. I liked the action and characterization. Dickens is definitely partial and prejudiced in his historical approach as well, even, if his book tries (with varying success) to carry more authority and substance. While I think Austen approached her work in fun with a good amount of playfulness, Dickens takes his subject much more seriously. While one can entertain doubts that Austen truly means every word she wrote in A History of England, Dickens opinions, which are even harsher in some ways, sound genuine enough.
