Summary:

The most gorgeously theatrical of all Dickens's novels, Nicholas Nickleby follows the delightful adventures of a hearty young hero in nineteenth-century England. Nicholas, a gentleman's son fallen upon hard times, must set out to make his way in the world. His journey is accompanied by some of the most swaggering scoundrels and unforgettable eccentrics in Dickens's pantheon.

From the dungeon-like Yorkshire boys' boarding school run by the cruel Wackford Squeers to the high-spirited stage of Vincent Crummles's extraordinary acting troupe, Nicholas Nickleby is a triumph of the imagination, bursting with color, humor, and poignant social commentary.


"For those of us who love Dickens, this is exactly what we love best: the hearty hero, the evil scoundrel, the benevolent benefactors, humor, social commentary, and, best of all, the vast array of eccentrics…. [Robert Whitfield] covers the gamut from effete snob to exhausted street urchin, and not only manages to keep them all straight, but infuses into every one a distinct personality. This is a feast!"—AudioFile

    An exciting and moving adventure, told with eloquence, wit, and humour. In the some cases, the plot twists, wth its many coincidences, seemed to me to be a bit of a stretch. But I loved the characters, and for their sake, was willing to "accept" everything that happened as "real." The narration was superb. After some confusion as to who the narrator was, I discovered that Simon Vance and Robert Whitfield are the same person. By either name, this narrator is a gifted vocal actor!
