Summary

David Timson talks about Charles Dickens, much loved for his great contribution to classic English Literature. Listen to The Pickwick Papers narrated by Anton Lesser.
The Pickwick Papers, Dickens' first novel, is a glorious romp through the pre-Reform Bill England of 1827. Traveling by stage-coach, the innocent but well-intentioned Pickwick and his equally naive friends, all in search of "interesting scenes and characters," are repeatedly saved from disaster by the resourceful and quick-witted Sam Weller.
Listen to The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens.

Taster that does its job

Now I intend to read the whole book. Sounds like one of Dickens' more cheerful creations. Wonderfully narrated. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Not quite an introduction.

This isn't an introduction, such as one you might find in a text. Rather, it is a collection of excerpts. It is, however, enjoyable.
