Product Description

About the Author

Charles John Huffam Dickens lived from 7 February 1812 to 9 June 1870. He was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular. Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age. His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, is one of the most influential works ever written, and it remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Set in London and Paris, his 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, is the best selling novel of all time. His creative genius has been praised by fellow writers—from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell and G. K. Chesterton—for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism. The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This novel is truly wonderful, if rather doomladen. It had been a few years since I last read it and so I began again with the real joy of anticipated pleasure and I was not disappointed.

The product however contains a number of typographical errors which I find particularly annoying. Others might not.

For someone reading Dickens for the first time one of the other books would be better eg Bleak House. The main story line is a bit limited , and Mr Dombey's character so flawed as to be hardly credible likewise the character of his second wife Edith.
But some of the secondary characters such as Captain Cottle, and some of the scenes depicted are brilliantly done.

Dombey and Son is for the serious reader - it is different from the other Dickens novels - have not yet had time to read it through but having read it previously I know what to expect - it being unabridged - it looks great and is everything I had hoped for - in short delighted !!!!

Dickens at his best. Dickens is an all round story teller. Well drawn characters. Good description of scenes and situations so that the readers imagination is stimulated and places the reader in the centre of things..

Having read this book at school and seen the BBC production I have now re-read the book. I enjoyed it much more than the TV production. I think it was one his earlier works and it seems evident in the style.

My favourite Dickens; it is a little poignant for some and, as so often in Dickens, a wasted or used life. But the characters, particularly Captain Cuttle, and the hubris of Dombey, make for a great tale.

I am very much enjoying this book even though the English is of its Time.It can still teach us a lot about love and being wrapped up in one`s self.
