3.0 von 5 Sternen Much ado about nothing much. 24. Januar 2000
Von "ozboz"
Though generally entertaining, I found this to be, overall, a disappointing book. Dickens' characters here are more cartoon than ever. The villains are, to a man, totally beyond redemption; the heroes are goodness beyond heaven's greatest ambitions. (In fact, the good people are so sickeningly good, you almost start cheering for the awful uncle Ralph!) Plot lines run off into empty corners. The travelling play actors take up a hundred pages, but contribute nothing to the plot. Mr Lillyvick, the water clerk, and his patient family (patiently waiting for him to die and leave them his money) pop up regularly but provide nothing more sthan ome mildly humourous diversions. People die conveniently. Everything seems to go the way of our hero. And Dickens' usual set of amazing coincidences are more amazing than ever. In no other Dickens novel is it so clear that he is writing for a periodical (and paid, I suspect, by the word.) Chapter introductions go on for pages, dead-end corners are written in everywhere. Still worth reading, but not to be considered among Dickens' best work

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nicholas Nickleby - The young Dickens at his best. 2. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nicholas Nickleby is a marvelous novel. It is the young Dickens at his best. I almost feel guilty for giving it four stars, but giving it five would be unfair, I think, because his later works, such as Great Expectations, are bettter. The novel is written enthusiastically and contains some of Dickens' best humor. I especially found funny the character Mr.Lillyvick, the revered and dignified water clerk. And I will never forget Ralph Nickleby. Mr.Squeers and Arthur Gride were detestable and colorful villains, but they pale before Ralph Nickleby. He is such a cold and heartless character that he steals nearly every scene he is in. He has a certain magnetism that most of Dickens' good characters lack. And his suicide at the novel's end is so perfectly written that I read over it several times before I finished the novel. My only problem with the book was Nicholas's lack of psychology, but let us remember that this was written by a young man, not the mature artist of Great Expectations and Our Mutual Friend. The novel's strengths easily make up for its weaknesses. Nicholas Nickleby will be enjoyed by fans of Dickens and all other readers for centuries to come.

3.0 von 5 Sternen the Nonesuch Dickens Boxed Set: 5 volumes 19. März 2013
Von amalib

The one book I received is good, but I wonder why the offer comprises 5 books (The Boxed Set). This the point with Amazon Marketplace that sometimes what you get is not the same as what you bought.

"And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward." -- Matthew 10:42 (NKJV)

Let me clear that I am reviewing the unabridged reading by Simon Vance.

Dickens can seem remote to us today. The settings and problems don't exist in the same format. Underlying thdse differences, however, there are universal truths that are still with us: greed leads to harming others, love is kind, doing good is admirable, and children and vulnerable people should be protected. Dickens has a marvelous way of drawing characters who, although exaggerated, ring true ... and elicit strong emotions from us through their dastardly and good actions. In part, this is true due to the large differences between those doing good and those doing evil. In part, it's because Dickens knew how to reveal a stony or a kind heart in ways that are unforgettable.

I find that listening to readings of the Dickens novels makes them seem more current and relevant. Good readers bring out more of my emotions and help me not to miss important parts of how Dickens portrayed his characters. Simon Vance has done both quite well from my perspective.

While the plot line here won't often dazzle anyone with its complexity or unpredictability, the key to this book's success can be found in the set of astonishingly well-drawn characters: Ralph Nickleby, Wackford Squeers, Smike, Mrs. Nickleby, Newman Noggs, Frank and Ned Cheeryble, and Sir Mulberry Hawk. Even several of the minor characters receive careful development, intensifying the reader's (and listener's) ability to relate to the story.

As in the best of Dickens' novels, there are some astonishing ironies included in the plot that make finishing the book feel especially rewarding. Keep with it, even if you feel a bit overwhelmed by over 30 hours of listening.

Enjoy a good long drive with this recorded book!
