Publisher's Summary

One of Dickens' earlier novels, dating from 1839, it charts the fortunes of an honorable young man, Nicholas Nickleby, who has set out to make his way in the world. Dickens presents his remarkably vivid display of Victorian characters and the life they lead, from the generous to the fated to the crushed. Hope springs eternal, however, and righteous persistence brings rewards.

A wondrous performance

I'm totally in awe of the narrator. I've known and loved the book (and the 7 hour play!) for years. Yes, it's mixed and has some long and some unnecessarily moralising parts. But it's such a Dickensian joy. I imagine Dickens himself performing passages from it. And he could not have done better than David Horovitch. The voices were comical, moving, terrifying. The timing was perfection. I laughed and cried. Bravo!
