Information about this title:

Our Mutual Friend (written in the years 1864–65) is the last novel completed by Charles Dickens and is one of his most sophisticated works, combining psychological insight with social analysis. It centres on, in the words of critic J. Hillis Miller, "money, money, money, and what money can make of life" but is also about human values. In the opening chapters a body is found in the Thames and identified as John Harmon, a young man recently returned to London to receive his inheritance. Were he alive, his father's will would require him to marry Bella Wilfer, a beautiful, mercenary girl whom he had never met. Instead, the money passes to the working-class Boffins, and the effects spread into various corners of London society.

About the Author

Charles Dickens was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature's most iconic characters.

Many of his novels, with their recurrent concern for social reform, first appeared in magazines in serialized form, a popular format at the time. Unlike other authors who completed entire novels before serialization, Dickens often created the episodes as they were being serialized. The practice lent his stories a particular rhythm, punctuated by cliffhangers to keep the public looking forward to the next installment. The continuing popularity of his novels and short stories is such that they have never gone out of print.

His work has been praised for its mastery of prose and unique personalities by writers such as George Gissing, Leo Tolstoy and G. K. Chesterton.

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.

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!!

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.

First of all, it is unthinkable that any objective person would rate this version of the book more than one star. If there are any reviews on here that exceed one star, I would guess they were left by this book's compilers, or refer exclusively to Dickens' original story, not this representation of the book. I bought this "annotated" version for a deluxe experience, but what I got is a poorly re-typed copy of Our Mutual Friend. The text is riddled with typos and doesn't even use paragraphs. All the lines are justified fully left. The only annotation in the book is a three-page biography of Dickens which was cut and pasted from the web. This book is as much a scam as a fake watch from Times Square, and while it might be possible to decipher the story, the book itself will reduce the enjoyment of anyone who doesn't enjoy being ripped off. I bought the book sight unseen and had it shipped to my home when the physical store didn't have any copies of Our Mutual Friend. I don't believe anyone who understands how books are supposed to work would choose to buy this one after looking inside. I'm surprised that merchandise of this quality is available through Barnes & Noble, and I hope that when they realize what's being sold here, they will stop offering this version of the book.

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.
