    souloftherose: Both books are early Dickens' novels and written in an episodic, picaresque style. Although Nicholas Nickleby is more plot-driven than The Pickwick Papers and contains some darker themes, both works are fundamentally happy Dickens novels and readers who enjoy one would probably enjoy the other.… (mere)

There is everything here you expect in a Dickens novel. In the end it was one that did not shine brighter than any other. Nicholas is so young and rash, and Kate is so angelic, that I couldn't feel much sympathy for either. The most interesting character to me was Ralph Nickelby. He is thoroughly bad, but you see glimmers of internal struggle. He is much more complex than the usual Dickens character.
In the end, three solid stars instead of two for the character of Ralph Nickelby and a few humorous situations with the theater group. ( )

Dickens 4th book, and 3rd novel, published in 1838-39 and cementing his speedy celebrity, Nickleby combines the angry social statements of Oliver Twist with something of the sense of sharp satire of The Pickwick Papers. True, neither Nicholas nor Kate exhibit much in the way of interesting features, but as Tintin-esque Everypeople, they are surrounded by a gallery of delightful characters. The Victorian pathos is there in spades, and some of it is really quite silly, but one can feel Dickens gaining such a sense of self-assuredness as he works through this novel, and the picaresque nature of Nickleby's travels will not be equalled by any of the other novels that feature extensive journeys. The acting troupe, the brutal world of Mantilini's dress shop, and the figure of Ralph Nickleby, who extends on Fagin's sparks of life to suggest that the author might one day be interested in creating characters with more than one-and-a-half dimensions.

Excepting parts of Little Dorrit and David Copperfield, this is the Dickens novel that has the purest sense of fun, and combined with some of the powerful statements about the workhouse and the place of women, it's a very worthy read. To be honest, I think this is the height of the Dickens canon for several years, until Copperfield comes along. ( )

You know what you're getting yourself into with a Dickens book usually, humor, melodrama, intricate plots and absurd characters, and this was all that and more. There's a reason Dickens was such a celebrity in his day, he can tell quite an entertaining story. For me this book faltered a bit towards the end and I got the impression the author killed off Smike (poor Smike!) because he didn't quite know what to do with him, but it was still a very enjoyable read .

This is the first time I have ever managed to finish a book by Charles Dickens. It was actually recommended to me as one of his more accessible novels, so thanks to the recommender for a good choice. One of the things that makes it more readable than [b:Oliver Twist|18254|Oliver Twist|Charles Dickens|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1327868529s/18254.jpg|3057979] or [b:Great Expectations|2623|Great Expectations|Charles Dickens|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1327920219s/2623.jpg|2612809]is that at the start of the book the protagonist is an adult, not a child. This means that he has a bit more agency and doesn't just spend the first 200 pages getting neglected and mistreated as in the other two Dickens novels I've attempted.

That's the good part. I have two main beefs with Dickens' writing in general and this particular novel is no exception. Beef number 1 is just a stylistic one. In his attempt to maintain a light and cheerful tone, the author's attempts at irony are often just saying the opposite. So when Dickens describes "those stories of engrossing interest which are to be found in the more antiquated spelling-books" we all undersstand that he means that the stories are dull. In that sense it's technically irony, but it's irony without purpose. Frequently he confuses saying-the-opposite with irony, but irony needs to have a purpose, a reason that the speaker is distancing themself from the statement they are making - eg. in this case the purpose might be to lampoon the person who thinks these stories are interesting, but no-one thinks this. Without purpose it's just a moment of dissonance, of negativity. So, the point here is that a light, chirpy writing style needs to have wit, or it just comes across as sarcastic. In passages Dickens has loads of wit, in other long sections there was just not enough to engage me.

Beef number two (remember we were counting beefs. Stay with me) is the characterisation, or should I say caricaturisation. There are no characters in this book, there are only cliches and types and because they are so paper thin all the characters are eventually unlikeable. Remember that moment in one of the David Tennant series of Dr Who when he joins in a soccer game and is brilliant at it? Instead of liking him more, I liked him much, much less. The character of Nicholas Nickleby has a kind of moral sonic screwdriver that solves all problems and quickly becomes tedious. We want our heroes to fail sometimes and we want them to make compromises. Or at least I do. Dickens' enduring popularity and respect obviously make that generalisation incorrect. Having said that, I actually found Nicholas Nickleby to be the least unlikeable character. The baddies are so relentlessly evil that it's impossible to think of them as human and the goodies are so weak, stupid, helpless or unlikely as to be highly punchable within five pages of their introduction.

Finally I'll note that I don't take pleasure in seeing people get their comeuppance. When a miserable person who did terrible things suffers for their actions, it's a sad occasion, not a cause for gloating and celebration (this is not a spoiler as there are many baddies in this book, so you'll have to read to find out where and whether just deserts are distributed). Dickens' vindictive kind of morality differs so greatly from mine as to be somewhat offensive and I couldn't enjoy scenes that I think I was supposed to rub my hands at.

So, this book is a good choice if you want to say you've read Dickens, or if you love Dickens, but otherwise, read [b:Jane Eyre|10210|Jane Eyre|Charlotte Brontë|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1327867269s/10210.jpg|2977639] for an idea of what 19th century literature can be. ( )

There once lived, in a sequestered part of the county of Devonshire, one Mr Godfrey Nickleby: a worthy gentleman, who, taking it into his head rather late in life that he must get married, and not being young enough or rich enough to aspire to the hand of a lady of fortune, had wedded an old flame out of mere attachment, who in her turn had taken him for the same reason.
[Introduction] When Dickens started writing Nicholas Nickleby on 6 February 1838 -- the day before his twenty-sixth birthday -- he was riding the crest of a wave.
[G. K. Chesterton Introduction] Romance is perhaps the highest point of human expression, except indeed religion to which it is closely allied.
