Have you read The Pickwick Papers? It does seem to be the one work by Charles Dickens which is sadly neglected by many readers.

"The Pickwick Papers" was originally published in 19 monthly magazine instalments, from March 1836 to October 1837, this last being a double issue. They were then reissued in a volume as The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club in 1839 when Dickens was still only 25. They comprise humorous sketches, themselves interspersed with incidental tales, such as "The Goblins w

I read the Oxford Illustrated Classics edition of Pickwick and these books are delightful for their reproduction of original illustrations.
Pickwick, in many aspects, is a young writer's book full of optimism and not as deeply serious about society's problems as Charles Dickens's works became. Samuel Pickwick does not ignore the troubles of his day, but takes them in a more philosophical and light-hearted way than later characters of Dickens.
There are hints of what is to come in Pickwick. Ther

Love this book! Been reading over a long time period, but it is written in such a way that you can just pick up and read another installment. Classic Dickens --fantastic colorful characters who get in interesting situations. I've laughed out loud many times in this book.
Unfortunately, I picked up something else, and set this aside. Now I've decided to try again later as I've forgotten too much.
