Like most of his novels, Dickens took a piece of social commentary and turned it into one masterpiece that survives the centuries, when such problems are long since past. Nicholas Nickleby tells the tale of a family broken by the death of their father, and relying on the help of a mysterious uncle. Yet, uncovers the problems of the old schools for boys, treatment of the disabled, as well a good turn of romance and Dickens-wit. Thoroughly good read and well worth the time.

&quot;I have tried reading Dickens....&quot; was what I would say to people who had read Dickens. I had started a few of Dickens' works a number of times and always found myself irritated by the over flowery beginnings. Definitely paid by the word, I thought, yawn. Then I read Nicholas Nickleby, one of my firend's favourite books. I have absolutely loved the humour and honesty regarding human frailty, in all senses of the word. The plot was a predictable heaven, especially if you like your plot with no loose ends and a satisfactory ending. Amazingly enjoyable. I'm not wholly sure nearly 200 years has elapsed since it was written because it all seems so familiar.<br/>Happy reading.<br/>This book has entered my top 10! Along with an ecelectic mix of others from &quot;Perfume&quot; by Patrick Suskind to &quot;Stardust&quot; &amp; &quot;American Gods&quot; by Neil Gaiman.

Having only read 1 of Dickens' novels in high school (Great Expectations) without enjoying it, for years I've stayed away from his other works. A love of all things Jane Austen and Elizabeth Gaskell, however, created a great love of BBC movies. And BBC reintroduced Dickens to me with their recent adaptations of Bleak House and Little Dorrit. So I decided to give him another try with Nicholas Nickleby. I loved it!! So much, in fact, that after a few chapters of reading it with DailyLit I simply had to purchase a hard cover edition to add to my library. With an engaging plot and characters that are moving and at times comical, Nickleby has made it's way to the top of my book list!
