"For those of us who love Dickens, this is exactly what we love best:
the hearty hero, the evil scoundrel, the benevolent benefactors, humor, social
commentary, and, best of all, the vast array of eccentrics. [Robert Whitfield] not
only manages to keep them all straight, but infuses into every one a distinct personality.
This is a feast!"--AudioFile

The most gorgeously theatrical of all Dickens's novels, Nicholas Nickleby follows
the delightful adventures of a hearty young hero in nineteenth-century England. Nicholas,
a gentleman's son fallen upon hard times, must set out to make his way in the world. His
journey is accompanied by some of the most swaggering scoundrels and unforgettable
eccentrics in Dickens's pantheon.

From the dungeon-like Yorkshire boys' boarding school run by the cruel Wackford Squeers
to the high-spirited stage of Vincent Crummles's extraordinary acting troupe,
Nicholas Nickleby is a triumph of the imagination, bursting with color, humor, and
poignant social commentary.
