One of Dickens' earlier novels, dating from 1839, it charts the fortunes of an honourable young man, Nicholas Nickleby, who has set out to make his way in the world.

Dickens presents his remarkably vivid display of Victorian characters and the life they lead, from the generous to the fated to crushed. Hope springs eternal, however, and righteous persistence brings rewards.

    " Ugh, I am officially Dickensed out. It all started when I read Bleak House a few months ago (which I absolutely loved) and followed that up with Great Expectations. The Dickens reading kick continued for a few more books, so by the time I got to Nicholas his story seemed like too much of a retread of what I just read in another book. At this point, it is just too much cliche, albeit cliches Dickens created. The large cast of characters is mostly wonderful and loveable. Except, of course, the characters we are supposed to hate, and they are delightfully vicious and evil. Some of supporting cast, though (particularly Mrs. Nickelby) had me rolling my eyes and skipping ahead a few pages once I got to their dialogue. Perhaps if I take a break from Dickens for a few years, his plots and characters will seem fresh once again. "

    " It's funny that I was surprised how good of an author Dickens is. "

    " By far my favorite Dickens novel. I don't think I usually laugh so hard at Dickens as I do with this one. "

    " When I came up with this theme, Charles Dickens was the first author (after Jane Austen of course) that popped in my head. I choose "Nicholas Nickleby" because it spoke to me. It's an interesting coming-of-age tale, but really tells the story of the Nickleby family instead of just Nicholas. After his fathers death, Nicholas finds a way to provide for his virtuous sister Kate and his mother, who reminded me a bit of a less outrageous Bennet mother from "Pride and Prejudice". Nicholas is a great character, I really liked him. But my heart goes out to Smike. So sad, I really felt for him. Like I said before, it's not just about Nicholas. I didn't expect that. Maybe that's why this book was so gigantic. That's the main reason why I didn't give it a five star rating: the length of the book. I loved "Nicholas Nickleby" but it could use some 'deleted scenes'. This Dickens story fitted my theme perfectly. "
