Listener Opinions

    " It took me several months to read this, but I really enjoyed it. I had always heard this book was funny, but I was still surprised to find myself laughing while reading. The various characters are truly "Dickensian." I often felt like I was getting hints about the stories and characters that would appear in his later works. This book is more like a series of sketches, and is lighthearted in many places, but there are also hints of the heavier themes that appear in later works. This took a long time, but I'm glad I read this! "

    " Read this but didn't like it that much. But to repeat myself again good that I read it as reading a classic always enriches one's vocabulary and command over the language. "

    " why was Sam so smart? kill him! Mr. Pickwick "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayne Charles | 1/13/2014

    " A sort of Victorian drop-your-trousers farce. I suspect if I had been reading this when it was first published, in instalments, some weeks I would have been waiting eagerly for the next bit, other times able to take it or leave it. The chapters with the two young doctors in left me cold, mostly, but really liked the early escapades involving Mr Pickwick (who in my imagination looks a little like Captain Mainwaring from Dad's Army); if there was ever the slightest possibility that by accident he could wander into the bedroom of a partly unclothed lady he woud always end up doing so. Brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 1/5/2014

    " Except for Sam Weller - a prince among manservants! - Pickwick will always be for me the March girls playact in the beginning of Little Women. That's pretty high praise, but it's slightly troubling that these are my only insights after 800 tiny-type pages. Dickens is Dickens - therefore Pickwick is still superior to most other books - but even for those as addled as I, this one is for completists only. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danica | 1/3/2014

    " Characters shined in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 12/8/2013

    " Rambling but quite a collection of stories and glimpses into early Victorian life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shane | 4/5/2013

    " Hilarious and clever, Dickens seems to be well ahead of his time with the sarcastic humor he employs in this book. It is a bit long for a casual reader, but never boring or uninteresting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carmelle | 12/17/2012

    " Hmm. Not sure I will finish this. I've gotten a quarter way through, and will be saving this for a time when I am desperate for an audio book. While the story is indeed extremely slow paced, the clincher for me is the lack of interest I have for this cast of flat characters... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dean | 11/20/2012

    " Well written, but their coach propelled adventures are slow to develop and a little pedantic "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 11/8/2012

    " A fun comedic masterpiece. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace Best-Page | 11/6/2012

    " It was a little hard to get into, but I was glad I gave it a chance. It's the funniest of the all the Dickens that I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 6/6/2012

    " I love Dickens, and am reading them all again during this year of celebrating the bicentenary of his birth. Pickwick Papers is one of my favourites for its wonderful comic descriptions and characters. His style may be too long-winded for some, but there are many of us who love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 3/28/2012

    " Good for a first book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikhail Baskov | 3/26/2012

    " One of my most-loved books. Re-read it twice. Tempted again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurie | 6/24/2011

    " I should read this again. I didn't appreciate the episodic, anecdotal quality of the book back then. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 6/17/2011

    " VICTORY DANCE. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Pellecchia | 2/17/2011

    " Endearing early Dickens. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James Sorensen | 10/27/2010

    " The first major work published by Dickens. Even for lovers of Dickens this is not everybody's cup of tea. Can be slow at times but, if you enjoy the dry and droll British humor it may be worth the time (I've read this book twice). Also, this is the book that brings us the character Samuel Weller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Kelsey | 9/25/2010

    " Charles Dickens' first novel. Not one of my favorites. Although I came to admire Mr. Pickwick, the characters lacked the rich personalities that Dickens is famous for creating. Starts off slow but does build and become more exciting toward the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cate | 9/12/2010

    " witty, sarcastic, a good fun read--like wine, it gets better with age and should be enjoyed at a slow sipping pace "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristine | 7/6/2010

    " I loved the English humor. It is a long book. At times, when I wasn't paying enough attention, I was a little lost. I enjoyed the description of mid 1800s English life. Dickens is an amazing writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George Kastner | 11/14/2009

    " Read this aloud to Lucinda. I have previously read Pickwick Papers 3-4 times. As with every Dickens novel, as I am reading it I think it is the best book he wrote. "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
