    " I'm not gonna lie...it was a struggle getting through it. "

    " If you are not already a strong Dickens fan or into a lot of social satire, don't read this novel. Start with David Copperfield or Great Expectations. The basic story in this novel is very good and would make a very good movie on BBC. Dickens just gets too wordy. It takes almost three pages to describe objects seen from a coach. The descriptions are poetic, and the philosophical paragraphs are thought provoking, but there are just too many of them. Unless you are very talented at skimming, you will get bogged down. I give 4 stars to the story and 2 stars to the rest of the novel. It was very interesting to have Dickens' critical eye on 19th Century America where we find: 1. A land swindler that sells swamp land sight unseen, newspapers looking for the latest scandal, patriots who think Europeans know nothing including facts about their own countries, freedom lovers who don't want those lower than them in society or black people to have any rights, and a gun toting man who owns multiple weapons and is ready to use them at any time. One could hope that America has improved in the last 150 years, but some of this sounds all too familiar. "

    " My favorite of all his books! Its brilliantly clever. Its one of the few books that I was compelled to read after watching the BBC movie. Dyane "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Sterckx | 11/9/2013

    " With dialogue that made me laugh out loud, this is one of my favourite Dickens all told. The American scenes are palpably angry and disgusted satire. "

    " TOO MANY POINTLESS WORDS!! I'm a big fan of Charles Dickens. I've read and re-read most of his works. I usually love all of his words--they make the story and the characters and the settings come alive! But I had a hard time with this one. In fact, I actually gave up on it at some point. It just seemed to annoy the crumbs out of me. When you've read 100 pages of a book and you're still waiting for something to happen, it seems like maybe it's time to put that book down. Perhaps some day I'll try it again; but for the moment, I'm okay with the idea that even great writers miss the target once in a while. "

    " Supposedly Dickens' own favorite. But failed to pull me in far enough to slam the coach door and stick the ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 9/18/2013

    " Great stuff! Love the social commentary and Dickens's humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 7/18/2013

    " Classic Dickens! Need I say more? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Shilstone | 6/17/2013

    " Mr. Dickens has a peek at America and is none too pleased. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Daly | 3/8/2013

    " Brilliant in every way a fanatic story told brilliantly by a master story teller. Everyone should read this rich tale of greed, love, lust and human nature on every level. Read it as soon as possible if you have not done so. "

    " AMAZING!!! Movie also!! Everyone read it!!! "

    " A little short, but still an enjoyable Dickens "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire Johnson | 12/21/2011

    " I'm not much of a Dickens fan, but this one is even worse than the other ones I've read. It's boring and confusing. Too many characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Carrillo | 12/7/2011

    " Dickens always gets five stars in my head, but for some reason I did not like the female character at all in this one. But of course the story was masterfully delivered. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruthiella | 7/30/2011

    " First Dickens I ever read and therefore my favorite. There is no credit in being jolly when times are good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 5/14/2011

    " Great book. Dickens' language takes a little getting used to but it's well worth the effort. "

    " Dickens always gets five stars in my head, but for some reason I did not like the female character at all in this one. But of course the story was masterfully delivered. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie | 1/2/2011

    " All right-I'm weird. I don't know why, I just really liked this one. Loved Martin.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 12/30/2010

    " Dickens draws on his own experiences of travel in the USA, and his descriptions of politics there still seems quite relevant today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/26/2010

    " I read this when I was a teenager and my grandmother sent us the set from England.
    I read it twice again at university. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jerome | 11/27/2010

    " I liked the story, but found the book to be difficult to read due to the rather long winded descriptions and antiquated language used. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 11/6/2010

    " A good read: interesting and humorous, with Dickens's finely drawn characters, as usual. Perhaps a little too long. Five stars ***** for anyone not in any rush. Three stars *** for anyone in a hurry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 9/28/2010

    " Loved it and am very proud to have finished my goal of reading (at least once) all Dickens novels. "
