Editorial Reviews

Review

"We read Dickens because his perception and investigation of the human psyche is deep, precise, and illuminating, and because he tells us things about ourselves by portraying personality traits and habits that might seem all too familiar."

...We need to read Dickens's novels, because they tell us, in the grandest way possible, why we are what we are." -Jon Michael Varese, The Guardian

"This collection does a great job of putting all of Dickens great works in one file. With the bookmark function, you can easily transfer from one work to another if you wish. Best of all, this collection won't clog up your library screen with several titles." -Konstantin VINE™ VOICE

"This collection is a work of high professional quality, and worth several times its low price." -John F.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Imagined! November 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Even if you are not a devotee of eBooks this is one volume that just may convert you. This is a concise, always available on your Kindle of all that Dickens wrote arranged into Novels, The Christmas Books, Short Story Collections, Short Stories, Christmas Short Stories, Collaborative Works and Non-fiction, Poetry and Plays. Each of these well-considered sections is arranged as to date of publication. (Actually the surprise included by Doma Publishing House is the inclusion o Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Lucy Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. THAT is one generous inexpensive volume!

It may come as a surprise to many that Dickens was even more prolific than we knew. 15 Novels (ending with The Mystery of Edwin Drood so popular among theater goers right now), 5 Christmas Books, 11 Christmas short stories, some strange collaborative works and the works `Sunday Under Three Heads, American Notes: For General Circulation, Pictures from Italy, and A Child's History of England.

The book starts with a fine Introduction to Charles Dickens and then jumps right into The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. From there we can sail through the entire output - and the real joy is that we have the choice of reading a novel, then a short story, then a Christmas story - wherever the need exists.

This is about the finest addition to the library as possible and thanks to Doma Publishing it is all on eBook - ready and waiting, invitingly. Grady Harp, November 12

5.0 out of 5 stars A++ Would Buy Again January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like to buy anthologies and "complete works" for my Kindle Fire. Usually they are inexpensive or free public domain works but some are better than others. Some make you want your 99 cents back.

I can recommend this one highly, and will buy more from this publisher. It has a fine introduction and is well-organized. In the center menu button is a complete hyper-linked table of contents with each category of Dickens' writing separated and listed by year. That should be de rigueur by now, but unfortunately is not.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Serviceable but Flawed Collection December 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
GREAT to have all of Dickens' works in one place so inexpensively. Obviously they were scanned, but not competently proofread or copyedited afterwards. FULL OF ERRORS -- for example, a poor original has sprinkled "Dombey & Son" with a rash of unintended capital letters. Most of the errors can be read through, but every now and then, a change of a word or two makes meaning impossible to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dickens is Revealed in His Work September 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This collection is not just a set of great stories. They are all bits and pieces of an autobiography he was never really brave enough to write. His own experiences with child labor were ones that he hardly ever even spoke to his friends about, but he addressed the issue heavily and very personally in David Copperfield and Oliver Twist. He was practically speaking of his old run-down home in the early pages of Great Expectations. With Nicholas Nickleby he gave the world a harsh view of boarding schools that until then had been swept under the rug of society, and his book brought about the closure of many of those horrid places. He awoke the public to the sufferings of the poor, having experienced it firsthand, including the horrors of a debtors' prison in the Pickwick Papers and the stiflingly inefficient government systems in Bleak House. He even spoke of his own misplaced passion, one that likely led him into an affair that was a mistake, in his adoring descriptions of the cold Estella in Great Expectations.

Many give Dickens the criticism of being too unreal. His main characters are too good, the girls are all too sweet, the villains are all too mean. But these critics have never seen life through the eyes of graceful love that Charles Dickens breathed. If Agnes in David Copperfield is too pure, then it is because the story is told by Copperfield himself, and he cannot dwell a minute on her faults when there is only so much space to write about how angelic she is.
Dickens is known for writing huge volumes of works, but his short works are equally enjoyable. Sketches by Boz gives a hearty, if sometimes cynical, look at the world of his generation. George Silverman's Explanation is a wonderfully sad tale that will leave you wishing he had continued it.

Having a collection of this magnitude is every book lover's dream! What's even better is that the "Charles Dickens Collection 55 Works" is all in one neat file on my Kindle Fire. I have access to all of his major works and, I can skip around, bookmark and read any part of it. I've been listening to A Tale of Two Cities on Audible.com and also looking up parts where I felt like I needed to read the actual words. It's a great collection, and honestly, it's got a few more bells and whistles than the free e-books online. For $3, this ebook is a steal!

There is no need for me to review the material in this collection, I'll keep this review to the format and organization of the literature. This collection does a great job of putting all of Dickens great works in one file. With the bookmark function, you can easily transfer from one work to another if you wish. Best of all, this collection won't clog up your library screen with several titles. Hope this helps... Enjoy!
