about


The Mystery of Edwin Drood is the final book by Charles Dickens.  The novel was unfinished at the time of Dickens's death (9 June 1870) and his ending for it is unknown.
Though the novel is named after the character Edwin Drood, the story focuses on Drood's uncle, precentor, choirmaster and opium addict, John Jasper, who is in love with his pupil, Rosa Bud. Miss Bud, Drood's fiancée, has also caught the eye of the high-spirited and hot-tempered Neville Landless, who comes from Ceylon with his twin sister, Helena. Landless and Drood take an instant dislike to one another. Drood later disappears under mysterious circumstances.
The story is set in Cloisterham, a lightly disguised Rochester.  Mr Crisparkle, for example, lives in a clergy house in Minor Canon Corner, which corresponds to a genuine address within the precincts of Rochester Cathedral, namely Minor Canon Row.
This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  The work has also been annotated, with additional information about the book and author, including an overview, plot, characters, hints, adaptations, pop culture references, biographical and bibliographical information.
