    If you like Dickens, this is the way to go!

    This is a very nice version of the novels - nice, clean copy with no typos. It has a nice biographical section that's very surprising. Navigating on my Nook 1st edition was simple - each book was considered a chapter for the purpose of navigation.

    The only thing to watch out for is that there is a synopsis of each novel - in FRONT of the novel - which basically gives the whole thing away. So don't read it before you read the book, even though it comes first! Another hint: The Mystery of Edwin Drood is not complete, because Dickens was working on it at the time of his death. You wouldn't know this because I just told you not to read the synopsis...

    The novels themselves were fantastic. At this point I have read all of them except the Pickwick Papers and Edwin Drood. I felt like I was in 19th century England and learned a lot about what life was like back then. I also loved the English sayings and phrases, and I was surprised at how many of the expressions we use actually go back that far. The Nook Dictionary also shed light on a surprising number of old words.

    Dickens excels at creating ridiculous characters with funny traits, but he can also do nasty characters really well (Nicholas Nickelby probably has the worst bad guys of all the novels). You really care about and root for the good characters. The stories also reflect social issues of the day, like the way the poor were treated.

    This collection was a steal, and since the novels are long, you will have a lot of reading material. You'll see why Dickens has had such a lasting legacy!

    Classic

    Dickens is a timeless read. He was the first novelist to use social commentary in his work. His eye for seeing wrongs in society and addressing them through his characters is still an effective plot device. We still have the poor who retreat into substance abuse, etc.

    OVER 9,000 PAGES

    I would not recommend putting this on your Nook unless you want a book that is over 9,000 pages long. If I had it to do over again, I'd buy only the one book I need. I'm not a big Dickens fan, and I will not read any of the other books in this collection. The minute I'm finished reading "Our Mutual Friend", I'll delete this book from my Nook. And it was not easy to find the start of my book in this collection, as there is not a good table of contents.
