Nicholas Nickelby

I read the Wordsworth Classics version because it had illustrations and said that it was complete and unabridged. The phrase 'hear me out' was used quite a lot and I wondered if Dickens had actually written that.  It certainly seemed to jar with the other more formal prose.  I struggled a little bit with the more formal prose but I like to struggle with my reading so enjoyed it all the more. 

 

The story is the life and times of one Nicholas Nickelby.  Too long to even surmise here and anyway it's well enough known.  The characters (and their names!) were flawless and the story also so.  It had a cast of thousands but I didn't need to write them down in order to feel I knew them and their respective roles. 

 

My copy was very long, some 769 pages so it's a time investment, but one worth making, imho.
