Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation,but also the horror of the infamous debtors’ prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and “slave” factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years’ formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work.

I loved the binding, print, quality of the paper and the bookmark-tassle inside.

I bought a few of these beautifully bounded Penguin Classic books. Great Expectations, Pride and Prejudice, and Jane Eyre. They are beautiful on my book shelf but I wish that the quality was better. Gosh in this day and age with Kindle and computers I miss the art of book binding and printing. Don't get me wrong I love my computer and I love modern technology but I will never, ever give up having books. I love the smell and feel of paper. I think that the Everymans Library cloth bound hardcover books are better quality but these get points for the printing on the books. By the way Amazon has the best prince on these. I saw them at Anthropologie for almost $10 more.

The classic story we've known, loved, and shared with our children.

However the page size of this edition is so small, it makes the book difficult to read and overly thick.

Given the choice, I'd pick a version with a more conventional size.

The story is everything I remembered from high school.

This small edition fits easily into your pocket or bag. It has pages that were not properly cut. I trimmed them, but they are not perfect. Also, there was a strange little blob on one page that left a mark. If I didn't need it for book group, I'd have sent it back in spite of the sweet size.

I loved the binding, print, quality of the paper and the bookmark-tassle inside. I'm only starting to read it but have enjoyed it immensely thus far.

I've always wanted my own set of classic books. These couldn't be more beautifully bound. They really are beautiful. I absolutely urge you to buy this book if you're on the fence about it. It'll at least at some visual interest to your library if you don't plan on reading it!
