I have to agree about Dickens, I just had to read A Tale Of Two Cities for english. It was TORTURE! lol
I had to read that too and while I did I wanted to shoot myself.
But I will give the guy credit that he comes up with good stories. Like I read sparknotes on A Tale of Two Cities so I could get better sense of what was going on, and the story was actually good. And I watched Nicholas Nickleby, and if the movie is anything like the book then that was a good story too. He also wrote A Christmas Carol which is a classic. So he had good ideas, he just couldn't write them in an interesting way.
