    One thought on “Nicholas Nickleby”

    1. Reading Dickens is like taking a deep breath of air, feeling life in its most vivid form!Being completely faithless and illoyal, I will now dump all previous Dickens novels and claim with brutal inconsistency that Nicholas Nickleby is my favourite!Yes, I know! I have said it before, and I am likely to say it again, knowing human nature in its most Dickensian expressions. But Nicholas really is my “Now Time Favourite”.I should like to state my case, as it would be very un-Dickensian of me not [...]

    2. Peter Ackroyd, in his ground-breaking biography of Charles Dickens, says that Nicholas Nickleby is "perhaps the funniest novel in the English language". The complete title of the novel is perhaps a bit of a mouthful,"The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, containing a Faithful Account of the Fortunes, Misfortunes, Uprisings, Downfallings and Complete Career of the Nickleby Family".It was published, as his previous novels had been, in monthly installments, between 1838 and 1839, and the la [...]

    3. The life and adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, Charles DickensThe novel centres on the life and adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, a young man who must support his mother and sister after his father dies.تاریخ نخستین خوانش: پانزدهم ماه ژوئن سال 2010 میلادیعنوان: نیکلاس نیکلبی متن کوتاه شده؛ نویسنده: چارلز دیکنز؛ مترجم:محسن سلیمانی؛ مشخصات نشر: انتشارات سوره، 1376، در 116 [...]

    4. When the name of the cruel schoolmaster is Wackford Squeers you just know it's going to be good. Nicholas himself can sometimes be a bit prissy but this serves well as a foil for the many extreme characters that surround him (and he's a lot more feisty than the relatively milquetoast David Copperfield). This is classic Dickens at the height of his powers. My generic comment about Charles Dickens:First of all, although I am a partisan of Dickens' writing and have read and relished most his works, [...]

    5. "No dark sarcasm in the classroom.If you don't eat your meat, you can't have any pudding!"Pink Floyd, "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2"I delight in Dickens' class humor/social satire and irony. Nicholas Nickleby was third novel, right after Oliver Twist. This novel is lighter than Twist but nearly as influential in pressuring changes to English society in the mid-1800s. Here, Dickens' target was an abusive all-male boarding school in Yorkshire. In researching for this novel, Dickens made visits [...]

    6. Only now, as I will getting to know the work of Dickens, I begin to understand why his books make me feel young. It is that books like this arouse the dream; they are dramas of real life in which good and evil clash, but being the Good the eternal winner. This naiveté is no more than a reflection of the natural goodness that characterized this magnificent human being named Charles Dickens. The famous Happy Endings of Dickens are not only elements of romantic oversimplification; They are a manif [...]

    7. I’m really not sure why I like Dickens so much. He is predictable, there will be coincidences that could never happen in the real world, and in the end everyone will get their just deserts except for the poor, sad creature who is destined to see heaven ahead of his time. Ah, but he does it with so much style and panache. He creates characters you are seldom ambivalent about, dastardly villains you can feel no compassion for, and good people who restore your faith in humanity.In Nicholas Nickle [...]

    8. After his father dies, Nicholas Nickleby must go to work to support his mother and sister. The family is at the mercy of the "wicked uncle." Nicholas, at Ralph's arrangement, takes a position with Dothebys, a boarding school run by Mr. Squeers. Squeers and his equally corrupt wife regularly abuse the boys in their charge. After an incident, Nicholas leaves for London, being joined by Smike, one of the older boys. Newman Noggs, an employee of Ralph Nickleby,delivers a message to Nicholas. Life, l [...]

    9. 2nd readingI wouldn’t have chosen this Dickens to reread but for recently joining a local group (The Dickens Fellowship of New Orleans). The reread was certainly worth it and not only for the convivial fellowship of the monthly meetings. (How can you go wrong with cheese and cakes being offered, and tea and sometimes wine being poured?) Sure, there were the somewhat annoying coincidences, melodrama, blushing love interests and meaningless side-plots (and I don’t mean at the meetings), all tr [...]

    10. I have a titular affinity with this novel since it incorporates many common misspellings of my surname: Nicols, Nichols, Nickles, Nicholas, Nicolls and (once) Amber Juliana Swami. Dickens’s third novel unites the comedic episodes of The Pickwick Papers with the melodramatic realism of Oliver Twist in a brilliant 832-page (OWC edition) adventure filled with more manipulative drama than Lot 45 on Hollywood Studios (known as the Robin Williams Crap Mound). Unlike the aforesaid former comic actor [...]

    11. One common criticism of The Pickwick Papers is that it has no plot. This novel is the antithesis of Pickwick, it has too much plot. At 1020 pages in length this is the largest book that I have ever read, and it really felt like it. Dickens is the master of setting and characterisation. However, sometimes he can get so caught up in describing the mood and the presence of a location that half the chapter is gone before any dialogue is even uttered. This novel contains, in my opinion, one of Dicken [...]

    12. When I first went to the UK and was doing my version of A Tour Round the Whole Island of Great Britain, which involved many hours alone on British Rail and in B&Bs, this was the only book I took with me - and it was the only one I needed. Because of their length, you could probably say the same about any of Dickens' novels, but somehow this story of two young people going out for the first time to travel through the world on their own (albeit by necessity and not by choice) and meeting all k [...]

    13. I couldn't quite bring myself to give just one star to a master of English fiction, but honestly, this book is Dickens at his worst: maudlin, melodramatic, and almost pathological in its hysterical demonization of the villains. Dickens here caters shamelessly to the sentimentalities, moral simplicities, and stereotypes of his readership. The good characters are gooily good, the bad ones lack not only any redeeming feature but any plausible motivation, and we are encouraged to relish their downfa [...]

    14. Wackford Squeers!The aforementioned schoolmaster is probably the most famous character (with the obvious exception of Nicholas himself) in Dickens’ third novel. Indeed, in my memory of this book – which I last read some fifteen years ago – Wackford Squeers featured as one of the dominant figures. And that’s somewhat odd as he is not the major villain of the piece, he is merely one of a gallery of grotesque rogues the Nickleby children encounter. So why does he linger so long in the mind? [...]

    15. "In short, the poor Nicklebys were social and happy; while the rich Nickleby was alone and miserable."The contrast between rich and poor, happy and miserable, greed and contentment, have always been key parts of all Dickens' works. Nicholas Nickleby is no exception to this rule in how Dickens sets up the titular hero as the originally poor, yet noble, character and the other men around him as scheming misers.The plot essentially follows the Nickleby family, left without a father and with Nichola [...]

    16. You guys should know by now that I'm a tragic Dickens fangirl. I've been obsessed with the dude's writing since I was ten. I passed Dickens Trash status many a long year ago. Nicholas Nickleby isn't one of my favourites, and it took me a solid week to get through it. But it's still definitely worth a regular reread. Nicholas as a character is kind of a pain. He clearly has anger management issues, and yet everyone fawns over him. Madeline is almost non-existent on the page, and yet we're suppose [...]

    17. This Dickens’ title definitely goes on my list of favorites. After the death of his father, Nicholas Nickleby must care for his mother and younger sister. When the family appeals to miserly uncle Ralph Nickleby for aid, he gets rid of them as quickly and cheaply as he can and Nicholas is sent to work as an assistant to the brutish school master Wackford Squeeres in Yorkshire where he befriends the poor, abused Smike. Nicholas soon leaves Yorkshire which sets of a chain of events which engender [...]

    18. I just lovely Charles Dickens and this book lives up to all the others I have read to-date.Nicholas Nickleby is are hero and he lives up to this in every way. His uncle is are villain and he lives up to the word. Nicholas wants nothing but to protect his mother and sister but his uncle has other plans for these two ladies will Nicholas be able to stop his evil plans.Why not read this novel and find out for yourself

    19. this is possibly/probably the last dickens i will read, for a while at least. i might reread 'great expectations' to see if i still like it, but not soon. i have just read Borges claim he only reads for pleasure, not because it is classic. well i have read the last 3 dickens for just that reason, somebody told me they are 'classics'. by now i have read 5 dickens, enough to venture an understanding of his work. i can see why he is still read, why he is adapted for films, for tv and miniseries: it [...]

    20. Spoilers. Do not read if you fear them.I think that this is the most satisfying of Dickens's novels. But then, I say that about all of his novels, after each re-read. Except for Martin Chuzzlewit. : /Dickens is one writer I'll probably never review, because my reviews would be longer than the novels, so multi-layered as they are. The most satisfying scene:It was one of the brimstone-and-treacle mornings, and Mrs. Squeers had entered school according to custom with the large bowl and spoon, follo [...]

    21. Loved it! This is the light, breezy, humorous, cheery side of Dickens. He must have written this through a good, happy period of his life. Nicholas Nickleby contains Dickens’ signature purely evil people and purely pure people, his incredibly described people and situations. It also is chockfull of humorous paragraphs, descriptions, situations and quippy one-liners. Wonderful, entertaining reading with a great story, lots of twists, turns and surprises.

    22. Non nascondo che leggere questo libro è un'impresa impegnativa, più per la mole e il melodramma vertiginoso che per la lingua originale (il linguaggio di Dickens risulta ostico solo all'inizio, finché non si prende il ritmo, è molto più angosciante leggere questi incipit "Viveva un tempo, in una località appartata della contea del Devonshire, un certo signor Goffredo Nickleby" Goffredo?). Nicholas Nickleby non è il romanzo migliore di Dickens. Passa da melodramma a farsa (avrei volentieri [...]

    23. I'm not faulting Dickens for my tepid enjoyment of this. The BBC version starring James D'Arcy is absolutely marvelous and had me itching to read the source material. I'm sure it's just as great (if long-winded in spots, as Dickens is wont to do).However, as happens all too often, the audiobook narrator sucked ass. Robert Whitfield? You, sir, ran the gamut of voices from A to B. Okay, maybe C. Sometimes.(This review was fully intended to have GIFs of said James D'Arcy version, but the only ones [...]

    24. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?What can I say? This is Dickens at his best and the master certainly doesn't need MY recommendation! Suffice it to say that Simon Vance's narration does justice to the material making this an excellent choice for any audiobook reader with an ear for the classics.If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?'Sex! Drugs! Rock 'n' Roll! None of them are in this film but watch it anyway!'Any additional comments?Apologies fo [...]

    25. حتی حرصم می گیره بهش یک بدم :|اصلا نمی تونم نظر بدم :| خیلی وحشتناک بود :|میدونم که جناب دیکنز کار بزرگی کرده که فقر و بدبختی اونا رو به تصویر در آورده و این جور چیزا، ولی آخه اینطوری؟ البته من از تجربه ای که با بقیه آثارش داشتم می دونستم عادت داره شخصیت ها رو پرت کنه تو منجلاب بدبخ [...]

    26. Holy crap, if I had known how funny Dickens is, I wouldn't have put off reading him for so long. Now, I'm not sure why I did.While I read that Nicholas Nickleby isn't Dickens' best or most-respected work, I enjoyed the dickens out of it (sorry). Farcical melodrama at it's most amusing, I say. Sure, the characters are pretty cliche, aptonymical caricatures of various personality traits writ large, but who is better at rendering human motivations and clothing them in astonishingly recognizable por [...]

    27. So often there's a particular scene or series of scenes from a book that stay with me and the ones from Nicholas Nickleby are the early ones between him and Smike. On page 97 of this edition Nickleby sees Smike on his knees before the stove. Smike shrinks back expecting a blow but Nickleby says, 'You need not fear me are you cold?' Smike says he's not cold but Nickleby can see he's shivering. He thinks, 'There was such an obvious fear of giving offence in his manner, and he was such a timid, br [...]

    28. More of a ramble than a review(and contains a few mildly spoilerish bits)When young Nicholas Nickleby's father dies leaving him penniless, he, his mother and his sister, Kate, must throw themselves on the charity of their uncle, Ralph Nickleby. Though rich, Ralph is a cold, unfeeling man who sees no reason why he should be responsible for the welfare of his feckless brother's family. He seems to take delight in finding the worst position he can for young Nicholas, as assistant to Wackford Squeer [...]

    29. The first Dickens I read. I wanted to read Nicholas Nickleby so much since I love the adaptation starring the ever so gorgeous Charlie Hunnam as Nicholas. Compared to other Dickens that I have read, Nicholas Nickleby is lighter. Basically, it tells Nicholas’ journey to reach success. Not only that, he also reveals some dark secrets of his family. I enjoyed this a lot, due to the fact that when reading it, I always imagined Mr. Hunnam’s face *ehm*. The characters are also remarkable. Our hero [...]

    30. Wow, what a trial. I loved Great Expectations, I tolerated Oliver Twist, but Nicholas Nickleby was a bear to get through. I bought the book years ago in error, thinking it was on a college course reading list. This book sat on my shelf until I finally decided to take a crack at it last fall. After about 200 pages, I put it down and it just kind of sat there. Then I decided to download a pdf copy from google books in an effort to read a little bit each day at work on my lunch break. Didn’t enjo [...]
