Overview


Dickens’s last completed novel, Our Mutual Friend has been called one of his most gratifying works. The story centers on the inheritance gained by ownership of a dust-heap. The would-be heir, John Harmon, is found dead in the Thames and the fortune falls into the hands of Mr. Boffin, a kind but lowly clerk who becomes a mogul as a result. Enlivened—as are all Dickens’s novels—with a vivid cast of characters worthy of their names, Our Mutual Friend is a masterpiece of the all-corrupting power of wealth.

Mistaken identity, love, lust, murder - this book has it all. The characters are exquisitly portrayed. You'll fall in love with Bella Wilfer, Lizzie Hexam, and Eugene Wrayburn! Definitely worth the reading!!

I was really looking forward to reading another Dickens classic. Unfortunately this free version is unreadable. Once sgain, Iappreciate the effort to make these classics available in electronic format, but it's so disappointing to have the reading experience msr by the lack of quality control. I've always believed that if you are going to do something at least give it your best effort.

This ebook is totally garbled and unreadable--I tried reading it on the Nook Classic, Nook for PC, and Nook for Android with no luck.

There are so many typos and added punctuation that this ebook is unintelligible gibberish.

If you haven't read Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens, then this is the book I recommend. This book has the illustrations by Marcus Stone. You will love this book and treasure it--pass this classic tale on to others. Needless to say, Dickens stories will live forever.

Finally a version of this great book which is readable! Not perfect, but good. Our Mutual Friend is (in my opinion) more exciting, faster paced, and much more optimistic than Dicken's other works. With the exception of A Christmas Carol, this is his "easiest read". BBC's version of his book is also very good.
