" This is the first dickens work I've read that I can remember. The story while engrossing played a minor character to the language and dialog which was addictive. I found myself thinking in dickens voice. Further, while I read in the 21st century, and it was at times difficult to relate to the hardships of the characters, dickens is somehow able to transcend time. i could even appreciate the humorous way in which he portrays mrs nicklby's over dramatized situations and interpretations of events.
