Overview

The Posthumous Papers Of The Pickwick Club by Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens’s first novel, The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club (The Pickwick Papers) is a series of loosely-related stories about Pickwick Club founder Samuel Pickwick, Esquire, and the gentlemen of his acquaintance, including Augustus Snodgrass and Tracy Tupman, and his manservant, Sam Weller. Originally published as a serial between 1836 and 1837, The Pickwick Papers became a publishing phenomenon after the introduction of Sam Weller and inspired bootleg copies, joke books, and other merchandise.

The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club has been adapted for radio, stage, film, and television, and has figured in other prominent novels like Little Women.

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.
