Charles Dickens wit and humer is readily made apparent in his novel The Pickwick Papers. In many cases it made me laugh out loud. It was truly an enjoyable and fun read. 'In particular the hunting adventure and the Bagmans tale of a chair turning into an old man'. Throughout the novel there are nine different short stories that are either told by a character passing through or read by Pickwick theat seem to have nothing to do with the novel, but these certainly do not detract from the story. In true Dickens style, he does question some of the English Institutions such as the debtors prisons. I did truly admire Mr Pickwicks sense of values and his sense of what was right and what was wrong. I am also curious as to whether this novel had any influence on P.G Wodehouse's Jeeves. This is a long book but I wouldn't have minded it even if it were a bit longer.

Could not get a free sample to down load. I updated the updates for nook etc. and tried again including resetting my iPad.
I wanted this illustrated version so much I took a chance and bought it sight un seen.
It down loaded just fine and quickly. This may be a clue to what I am about to add . .

There is no contents.
The "illustrations" are not listed. Meaning you cannot just go to them and view them you must page through, according to the location slider at the bottom of the screen, six hundred pages.

OK if that were not enough . . . the illustrations are the size of postage stamps and will not enlarge. Even the cover art is so small I could not make out what it illustrated until my third visit.

I would have spent much more if I could have a decently turned out book. As it is it is a less than usefull scrol of text with some ink blots taking up space.

    When you cry out but are only greeted by sorrow. When you beg for something to fill the hollow space in your broken heart, but the only thing that continues to enter is emptyness. You claim you need no one, but the look into your distant sunken eyes betray your true feelings. Your pale face slowly fades away, leaving no trace of your exsistance, your name thrown to shame and lost in distant memories. When your dreams have fallen all apart, and all you're left with is a tired and broken heart. When reality hits you like the blow of a fist to your chest, and all your breath is taken in an instant, only pain numbing your emptiness. When you try to reach for something out of your grasp, only to find out you must face defeat. When you scream for comfort, for someone you love to wrap their arms around you, to whisper silk words into your ear, and you realize there is no one left. You realize that you have no where to turn to, that you've burned all your bridges, and it's all your fault. When you try to run, but there is something holding you back, stablizing you and giving you a reason to live, but you never find it.
