Robert Graves has written other historical fiction, as well. The ones I've read, I've liked:
Hercules My Shipmate
King Jesus, and, of course, the sequel to I, Claudius.
It is my opinion that Orwell's essays, reviews, and the 'As I Please' columns are superior to his fiction. They're available online for free and you might like to read his essay on Dickens just before or after reading Dickens himself.
If you find you like that sort of period piece (so to speak), Thackeray's Vanity Fair is chock-full of assholes and dimwits. It's also a hefty book, good for long bus rides and weekends or clocking someone who won't shut the gently caress up and let you read.
e: Twain's The Innocents Abroad had me crying from laughter during the Europe portion.
