Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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.
