Recent Read: Nicholas Nickleby, by Charles Dickens

I love going back to the classics, and there's never a better time to sit down and soak in Dickens than the very beginning of summer when I have plenty of time to enjoy every word!

Nicholas Nickleby was a great read! Although there are many tragedies in the book, the fact that in the end Nicholas and his family are able to live a wonderful life makes everything worth it.

The most interesting part of this book was how in Ralph Nickleby, Nicholas' uncle, we learn what might have happened to A Christmas Carol's Ebenezer Scrooge had the three spirits of Christmas not helped him to change his ways.
