Nicholas Nickleby, Volume 1
Dickens' contempt for injustice and poverty in Victorian England is palpable here. The book shimmers with Dickensian twists and turns. The characters are unforgettable, and Dickens' commentary on social vices pricks the conscience. It is considered one of the finest works in 19th century literature.
