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.

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.
