Publisher's Summary

When Nicholas befriends Smyke, a physically challenged runaway from a deplorable Yorkshire school, he risks his livelihood and the livelihoods of his sister and mother. Through many hardships and adventures, Nicholas demonstrates that loyalty and integrity can overcome the most devious machinations.

Featuring a glorious cast of Dickensian heroes and villains, Nicholas Nickleby is a tour de force Victorian novel. Scowl back at the cringeworthy Wackford Squeers, and laugh at the histrionics of the Crummels family. While Ralph Nickleby shows you the evils that money can bring, the Cheeryble brothers demonstrate the good. And though Nicholas walks through the fire, he also triumphs as a beacon of hope for the downtrodden.

    "Why have an American narrate Dickens?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book yes. This version, no.


    What other book might you compare Nicholas Nickleby [Classic Tales Edition] to, and why?

    Any other Dickens.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of B. J. Harrison?

    Martin Jarvis, or any English actor, or at least someone willing to attempt an English accent.


    Did Nicholas Nickleby [Classic Tales Edition] inspire you to do anything?

    Read more Dickens.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not anti-American, but this has to be read in an English accent. Imagine listening to Huckleberry Finn in an English accent - it would make no sense. This makes no sense. When it comes to the Yorkshire accent, one minute it is Scottish, the next it is Irish. It never comes close to Yorkshire.
