Emotional and full of lessons, Dickens instructs the reader with the words and actions of his characters. Trotty Veck (Toby) is lovable and friendly, strong, weak, and most of all, humble. He's a little bit of the good and naïveté in all of us. He reminds me of Pickwick in his gentleness and Sam Weller in his humorous philosophy. Even though he sees ghosts, there is no humbug in him. Yet he manages to display the post-conversion gratefulness and hilarity of Ebenezer in 'A Christmas Carol'.
Parts of the story are quite bleak and there is very little humor.
But if you like Dickens' other works, you will probably like this one, too.
