This book exceeded my expectations with the illustrative art work incorporated into the book. I'm using this book to make a e reader cover and it will be perfect. The book arrived on time and in perfect conditions, but it wasn't clear from the descriptions that the illustrations inside were only in black and white! I was disappointed to see mostly all of the images were in black and white.

There is something to be said for clarity when color is included in the picture. The writings are fascinating however, so if you want a slice of Dicken's life, this is quite interesting.

Oh, yes, Dora especially is the worst of them all! Does it make me a bad person that I was glad when she died…? Great review!
Flora is quite the character. I remember being resentful of its length. I never think Dickens should be read to a time deadline — they should be savoured in short bursts! I loved Flora. For some reason, I had managed to miss this one up till now — glad I finally got to it!

Loved this review and it has me wanting to re-read Bleak House too! Nothing will ever match Bleak House for me though — the best book ever written! Thank you! Haha — I know! Oh, you are lucky! Terrific review, FF. I felt that passage could have been written today without really changing a word, which is kinda disappointing. Oh, my, that practically makes me swoon!

Plus just holding the book is excellent weight training! Oh man I really need to read more Dickens! The problem with reading your blog is that I learn about so many classic books I want to read-but never seem to have the time for ;. I should read this; I do enjoy Dickens. How do you ever get out?? I love his writing so can always put up with any other weaknesses in the books.
Yes, it seems like the only way to get out is for someone else to pay it for you. Which I guess works when you have your children out working in factories etc. Excellent review. Flora was a really fun and likeable character, but I seem to have forgotten so many details.
Nicolas Nickelby was one of the first I read of Dickens and I absolutely loved it. With the exception of Great Expectations, I pretty much enjoy all of his books. Funnily enough, Great Expectations is my least favourite too, mainly because I was forced to study it at Uni and it got analysed to death, totally destroying my ability to get lost in the story.

I had the same problem with most of the books I read at Uni, this being why I gave up English Lit at the end of the first year. But I did have a sneaking sympathy for Magwitch, and poor old Joe Gargery. Oh me too- I did feel for poor Joe, Magwitch too. I meant more in terms of the main characters. I think it maybe depends on whether the author intend you to like them. I feel the need for a well-known favourite.
But sandwiched between the two is Hard Times — the book that turned me off Dickens for decades…. Haha — yes, silver linings are in short supply! Oh, I am enjoying it. There again, having it in the distance is an excellent carrot! Well Bleak House is my favourite too but I did enjoy this, you make an interesting point about the circumlocution office.
All the other books suggest the government was actually pushing for new inventions and industries. Maybe Dickens had had a bad experience with the government or something…. It is on my Classics Club list. Something distracting must have been happening in my life, or maybe it clashed with some other programme I was addicted to. I must get hold of it.
