Excellent for the book collector. Good, if dated, bibliography and biographical with critical studies included in this 1983 edition. For the Dickensian, this is a very good mid-level research tool.

I found Nicholas Nickelby to be a very entertaining book with lots of humor. It is a long book but holds your attention because of the quirky characters that Dickens is noted for. In Nicholas Nickelby, Dickens is showing us the social injustice mainly to children. The theme of good vs. evil is also very prevalent but in the end good is victorious and the novel finishes with the characters living happily ever after. I would recommend this novel to anyone who is interested in reading about Victorian England.

Read by actor, Tom Courtenay

From the back cover:
"Circumstances force Nicholas to enter the nightmarish world of Dotheboys Hall, a school run by the malevolent Wackford Squeers. When he leaves to seek his rightful inheritance, he travels southwards, encountering a troupe of theatrical artistes. The self-confidence he acquires is to stand him in good stead."
