The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (also known as The Pickwick Papers) is the first novel by Charles Dickens. After the publication, the widow of the illustrator Robert Seymour claimed that the idea for the novel was originally her husband's; however, in his preface to the 1867 edition, Dickens strenuously denied any specific input, writing that "Mr. Seymour never originated or suggested an incident, a phrase, or a word, to be found in the book."
Dickens was asked to contribute to the project as an up and coming writer following the success of Sketches by Boz, published in 1836 (most of Dickens' novels were issued in shilling installments before being published in the complete volume). Dickens increasingly took over the unsuccessful monthly publication after Seymour had committed suicide. With the introduction of Sam Weller in chapter 10, the book became the first real publishing phenomenon, with bootleg copies, theatrical performances, Sam Weller joke books, and other merchandise.

Charles Dickens' wit and wisdom, plus page-turner plots, make this a book for all seasons. Trouble is, this e-version crashed hopelessly part-way through. It even showed up uninvited when I opened other books. I needed two restarts to get rid of it. This is a Nook-breaker! Choose one of the many other versions available.
The first 150 pages or so are OK, but then things deteriorate quickly with bad OCR. In most cases the reader can puzzle out the true words and punctuation, but why should he or she have to? Sloppy work here makes for an increasingly frustrating experience that's best avoided.
I did not check carefully, but this version seems to be complete. There are a few errors, but overall it seems to be ok. Some illustrations are included.
