Certainly not one of Dickens's best, but you have to wonder what he would have done with it had he lived. I read the edition completed by Leon Garfield, which provides a completely predictable, but at least stylistically consistent, ending. This completion is in accord with G.K. Chesterton's comment that there really isn't that much mystery about Edwin Drood.
