Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Over Evil, Love Over hate. The main player in this stories Nickolas Nickleby, goes through many hardships in this story, but comes out as a champion, in the ring of kindest, and goodness. After Nickolas father dies he's force to take a job (as a teaching asst) at a private school, with a mean head master, and a wife that is almost as mean he is. After Nickolas leaves the the private school, because he beat up the head master, for threatening to beat a boy named Smike with a cane. Smike and Nikolas leave the private school together, and this is were story starts to get interesting. Also in this story we meet Nickolas Mother, A kind lady who talks to much. And his sister Kate, who is a all star Women. She is kind, pretty, and smart. Early on in the book, we meet the mean uncle Ralph. Who we find out near end of the book ( within the last 100 pages roughly ) That Ralph has many skeletons in his closet. As always from reading a Charles Dickens book, we get a excellent perspective on what living in the 19Th century in England was like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dickensian Delight A big read, but worth it in almost every way. Mr. Dickens does not need me to sing his praises, but if you have not read him since high school I recommend that you give him another go now that you have matured. The characters are wonderful (both the good and the bad) and the plot, although contrived, is a pleasure to read. It's interesting to compare how Austen and Dickens portray young women. If you like Nickleby, then try "Tom Jones" and "Pickwick Papers".

About the Author

CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) was born in Landport, Portsea, 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 two 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."
