Overview

Left penniless by the death of his improvident father, young Nicholas Nickleby assumes responsibility for his mother and sister and seeks help from his Scrooge-like Uncle Ralph. Instantly disliking Nicholas, Ralph sends him to teach in a school run by the stupidly sadistic Wackford Squeers. Nicholas decides to escape, taking with him the orphan Smike, one of Squeers's most abused young charges, and the two embark on a series of adventurous encounters with an array of humanity's worst and best—greedy fools, corrupt lechers, cheery innocents, and selfless benefactors.

This one kept me from my A-level studies. Bad book! Bad little book! A grotesque and sprawling masterpiece.

I got this free Nicholas Nickelby and it is a pretty good edition. Almost completely legible. The other reviews say that this is a bad edition but i found it decent. It is pretty much hit or miss with these freebies. The story is great but long, 755 pages. I highly recomand:-)

Nothing but typos! It's like trying to read this novel in a foreign language of which you know only a few words. Don't bother with it.
