As far as I know, Charles Dickens is very well respected by most literate Americans. I barely remember reading Oliver Twist, but no matter; my girlfriend teaches high school literature and she'd like to choke me sometimes when we get on this subject. I have read almost none of the Great Works.
I make no attempt to argue anything about this with her, and she just thinks I'm a total twit when it comes to world renowned authors and their works.
I suspect that you will see quite a few yanks hit your shores to see the Dickens theme park.
