Barnaby Rudge: A Tale of the Riots of Eighty (commonly known as
Barnaby Rudge) is an historical novel by the author Charles Dickens. Published between 1840 and 1841, it is Dickens' first attempt at an historical novel, his only other being
A Tale of Two Cities. Full of classic Dickensian characters, the plot is based on the "no-popery" or Gordon riots of 1780 seen through the eyes of the good-hearted idiot Barnaby Rudge.
Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced.

The Genius of Dickens
An exciting and thrilling story centred around the Gordon Riots. Dickens genius draws the listener into those times bringing alive his numerous colourful characters and the history of London and it's suburbs. Will definitely listen to this book again.
