Think quirky carnival. It's one of his earlier works but there are many moments of sophisticated brilliance: Quilp, the most supernatural of villians, a real psychopath; Samson and Sally Brass, the sleaziest lawyer/paralegal; Dick Swiveler (I'm not kidding), the original antihero you will learn to love, are all terrific. It's a little slow at times, but the good stuff makes it all worthwhile. It's got dancing dogs, wax museums, compulsive gambling, victorian gadgets, and best of all, he paints people with vivid descriptions, a Rembrandt of the pen. He has wonderful insight into human character. Spring for the audio if you can--Dickens used to do readings for money and was a great impersonator--could do all the voices--so its easier for him to come alive in the audio edition.
