    " There are some great passages here and wonderfully rich characters, but there is also an enormous amount of text to get through and an excess of characters. None of the characters are overly endearing but this is a very satisfying novel depicting the trials and rise of a lad following the death of his father and the destitution of his family. Thrown on the mercy of an uncle who despises them the family maintain their values and virtues and emerge vindicated and happy. "

    " A bit too much of a morality tale. "

    " Nicholas is a wonderful character: brash and hot-headed, he often gets himself in trouble. But his courage, unerring loyalty and faultless goodness always get him out again. Like all of Dickens' books, this one contains an unforgettable array of characters, including great villains such as Ralph Nickleby (a foreshadow of Ebenezer Scrooge, without the final redemption), Wackford Squeers and Sir Mulberry Hawk; as well as the hilarious, outrageous, flamboyant, foul-mouthed Mr. Mantalini. I adored this book and will read it again! "

    " A little heavy on the melodrama, but still sparkles on the humor side. I love all the theatrical stuff. "

    " Dickens' third novel is less cohesive than his later works. Its somewhat picaresque structure gives the audience a wide variety of characters and backdrops that Dickens portrays with compelling vigor. Read Nickleby for its excellent comedy and exuberant optimism, and its almost absurd melodrama, but don't expect the psychological complexity of his later work, in plot or in character. Nevertheless, very enjoyable. "

    " Charles Dickens is always out to improve the world. The way this school was run it was in dire need of improving. I love reading Dickens because his books are so long. Once I get into a book I hate for it to come to an end and this one runs 796 pages. As with most of Dickens' books it runs the gamut from very sad to quite funny and is full of strange characters. I can hardly believe there are so many deliberately mean people with such narrow souls in the world. "

    " I felt that there were two take in this book add if Dickens's had begin one idea then headed to another. The characters are many varied and if this was filmed today guy riche would direct it "

    " I think this was my favorite Dickens book so far. Not exactly sure why; I enjoyed the characters and it didn't get too cheesy until the end (Our Mutual Friend was pretty cheesy most of the way through). I like that it followed Nicholas without a love interest for the vast majority of the book. "

    " Reading this one again, this time to my kids. They picked it out at an old bookstore and asked me to...i was putty I'm their hands. It's one of the old original ones, I have to be very careful while reading it. "

    " It took me forever but I finally finished it. I was rather disappointed in it, isn't one of his best. "

    " I remember finding this one pretty tedious, although some of the characters intrigued me deeply. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary | 6/25/2013

    " A really great story. So fun, humorous at times, and relevant to our society so many years after it was written. "

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

    " Long, winding, circuitous, truly Victorian in length and breadth, not a pleasurable read I found compared to other works by Dickens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thom Walton | 2/26/2013

    " This is one of the great Dickens! The heros, villians, and love story (not to mention coincidences) are all in order and well done. Recommended, now a favorite in my list. "

    " Loved it, loved it, loved it! Another complex plot, another memorable cast of characters, another unforgettable novel by the Master. I am sad to have to say goodbye to these people who became like friends to me over the course of the book. "

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.
