such a clever funny book..it isn't a "novel" as such, more like a collection of observations from Dickens London - of people and places which are v funny and clever, the illustrations also being a joy.
The last section is called "tales" and is a bunch of extremely entertaining short stories which you will love i would pretty much bet on..he is the master of this kind of thing...just the thing for this time of year and a hot cup of tea
Bravo

I had wanted this book for a long time, as an avid Dickens reader and was finally presented with it for Christmas 2009. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it certainly was worth the wait! It is a series of short stories that give the reader a good insight into early Victorian life. Some of the stories are quite harrowing but the most humorous.
A truly great read and just one of many. Well done Charlie boy!

Format: Hardcover
A beautiful selection of sketches, skits and yarns for Dickens London. At times it makes you wonder how our ancestors survived the time that they did. Strong characters, funny tails, makes you want to more through the seperate tales forever. If you like the more popular Dickens books: Oliver Twist, Christmas Carol, etc. you'll read this and see where the foundation of all of those wonderful characters came from.

The bargain of the year. Much better than a paperback book, this hardbook book looked aged - but that is just how it shoud look (ie not too modern). Excellent value for money. In future I will look out for their books in preference to other sellers as their policy is such a good idea.
