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.

    " Still trying to power through... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 2/13/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 2/9/2014

    " 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. "

    " I've tried a few of Dickens books previously & found them too dry. This was not; the characters were relatable & I genuinely enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jphollis | 1/14/2014

    " Reading this on my Kindle. I'm enjoying the style of writing, but a hindred pages in and I still am not sure what the plot is. But you know what they say, sometimes you gotta just enjoy the scenery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/13/2014

    " Kind of slow and depressing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 P McCree Thornton | 12/30/2013

    " A work of art and a work of genius! I read it years ago in college and had forgotten how great it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/26/2013

    " Mr Dickens does it again. This man is truly a master of characterisation. By the end of the story, I felt I knew the characters so well that I could invite them to dinner and predict what they would do and say. It was a pleasure to immerse myself in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.M. Barrett | 12/19/2013

    " While this is not one of Dickens' best novels, I enjoyed it immensely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 12/14/2013

    " Have to accept that the sentences are extra long by current standards, but otherwise, an outstanding reading experience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 12/5/2013

    " Dickens' prowess as the creator of characters is exercised to the full in Daniel Quilp. For Quilp I was willing to forgive a lot of schmaltz. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jon Honer | 12/5/2013

    " Oh god this dragged on and on. I like a bit of Dickens but this had 200 pages too many. I wouldn't mind if the ending had been worth all that reading...not a patch on Two Cities "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Todd Jeffries | 11/17/2013

    " Not sure if it's because I had a lot going on, but this book seemed to take a lifetime to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Snyder | 11/7/2013

    " A delightful, fun way to read Dickens! No readers should miss the experience of meeting Little Nell and Quilp. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 11/6/2013

    " Not one of my favorite Dickens novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adi | 8/1/2013

    " I actually bought by mistake the abridged version. It only took two hours to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen L. | 5/11/2013

    " Dickens is always good. Little Nell is a Saint. I really liked the perseverance of love and commitment to friends in this story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 4/11/2013

    " I was a little disappointed in this one. It had the usual Dickens twists in the end but was not quite so catching as some other Dickens books I've read. I lacked a little more romance to carry the story and I felt a lot of the characters were left quite superficial. "

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

    " Yes, I cried. A few times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lili | 12/28/2012

    " Good another wonderful story, the writings are now old fashioned but the content is great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/16/2012

    " A delight. Beyond angelic Nell, there were several characters I truly enjoyed in this book. Definitely worth the time to read. "

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.
