Il romanzo venne pubblicato nel 1840 su un settimanale , e come volume nel 1842. Si compone di una carrellata di personaggi e di descrizioni dettagliate dei luoghi attraversati dalla piccola Nell e da suo nonno, nella loro fuga da Londra. Il libro alterna momenti di caratterizzazione comica dei personaggi (vi si intravedono le radici di altri successivi umoristi di lingua inglese, come Jerome e Wodehouse) a passaggi drammatici, che, tuttavia, come in tutta l'opera di Dickens, non mancano di morale. Al libro si è ispirata la serie di anime giapponesi La piccola Nell. Cornice musicale: Greensleves, musica popolare inglese.

    " Delightful. Oh Little Nell, Kit and the Marchioness. Plus one of Dickens' best villains in Quilp and 2 great death scenes. CD's comments on matters from farewells to "matrimonial differences" are by turns insightful and entertaining. Often both. How did he do it? Blissfully ignorant of the looming bicentennial when I started this, the timing turned out to be perfect. "

    " The evil character in Dickens's "The Old Curiosity Shop" is the most repulsive, revolting, sickening, hateful, and horrible character I have ever encountered in my reading, and his partners in crime are totally despicable, while seeming to maintain a veneer of respectability. I was slightly under the weather as I read this novel, and had to stop reading at several points, just to refresh my mind with some more refreshing thoughts for a while, before I could bring myself to read on. "

    " Dickens' prose is definitely not modern. If I was to edit his work today, his novels would be novellas and novellas short stories. But, the story told is timeless. I'll warn you that the ending isn't exactly a happy one and after 556 pages, I felt slightly cheated. What made up for this was the fact that the story makes you feel (rather than makes you think). At the end, I felt grief for one character while also feeling joy for another's success. It's rare to find a story that is more than words on paper, and this makes Curiosity Shop a classic in my eyes. "
