it was amazing

This book is the reason why I will never say I hate Charles Dickens. Because it's hilarious and wonderful and so far from being anything like Nicholas Nickleby. True, Mr. Dickens could not resist putting in insane murderers and hauting tradgedys but these are for the most part in stories that are told to the characters, so that's alright. This book would be enough to make me say I love Charles Dickens...if it weren't for Nicholas Nickleby and Bleak House and...everything else he wrote.

S.n. Jarvis You might be interested in taking a look at my forthcoming novel Death and Mr Pickwick. Pickwick is not only wonderful as a book - it also has the most fascinating backstory of any work of fiction I have encountered. And that is what my novel is about: how Pickwick came to be and what happened afterwards. You can find out more at: www.deathandmrpickwick.com Oh and I put in stories told to characters too! Best wishes Stephen Jarvis
