    " Giving a Dickens novel three stars! Brilliant prose, but falls apart in many ways, especially after the introduction of the creepy, smiley twin brothers. A couple of amazing scenes make it worth reading: well, all the theater scenes, a hilarious tea scene at Dotheboys School, the death of a certain character in a duel, a certain character's suicide. Still, doesn't rise to the level of the previous Pickwick Papers. Having said that, Dickens was only twenty-six years old when he wrote this novel. "

    " Pg. 8 Some London houses have a melancholy little plot of ground behind them, usually fenced in by four high whitewashed walls, and frowned upon by stacks of chimneys: in which there withers on, from year to year, a crippled tree, that makes a show of putting forth a few leaves late in autumn when other trees shed theirs, and, drooping in the effort, lingers on, all crackled and smoke-dried, till the following season, when it repeats the same process, and perhaps if the weather be particularly genial, even tempts some rheumatic sparrow to chirrup in its branches. "

    " Not quite as great as Oliver Twist, but great nonetheless. According to many reviews and synopses of this book, the character of Nicholas Nickleby was (or is) rather unpopular due to his pride and arrogance. But frankly, I enjoyed reading a believable personality. Many of Dickens' characters are either flawlessly good, or completely bad. Nicholas isn't flawless, but he is definitely respectable, and I appreciated his angry outbursts are realistic, especially given the circumstances. It is hard to believe that anyone, surrounded by such vile characters as Ralph and Sir Mulberry could constrain themselves at all times. A great return to form after reading The Pickwick papers. "
