One of Dickens earlier books. Little Nell is a less-than-terrific main character; Quilp is the essence of evil. The parallel journeys of Nell and Quilp and the pairings of characters and story lines are interesting. And, as usual, Dickens ties up all the loose ends and unnamed characters. The movie starring Peter Ustinov is a poor replacement for the book itself.
