  • I like long books, so I think that it is great and as there’s a quite clear story line you can take a break if you want to
  • My main gripe with this book, as with many of Dickens books, is that many of his female characters are very good and also very boring
  • Nicholas however, is more interesting than some of Dickens’ later heroes

      Nicholas Nickleby is Charles Dickens third novel. It is the tale of Nicholas Nickleby and his sister, who are left penniless when their father dies.

      The main antagonist is their uncle Ralph, who is a mean old man and doesn’t try to make life easier for his niece and nephew.

      The first thing that strikes


      you with the book is that it’s long.

      I like long books, so I think that it is great and as there’s a quite clear story line you can take a break if you want to.

      The book is classified as ironic social satire, and there are quite a lot of comments on the social ...


      • structures of Dickens time.

        There are also a lot of characters, both comical and serious.

        My main gripe with this book, as with many of Dickens books, is that many of his female characters are very good and also very boring.

        Nicholas’ sister is a good example of this, she’s quite passive, extremely good and

        in my opinion very boring.

        There are good female characters, and some of them are very funny, but not really anyone good and active.

        Nicholas however, is more interesting than some of Dickens’ later heroes.

        He’s not just good and brave, he can be violent and quite naïve at times, so he’s not just good.
