About the Author

Charles Dickens was born on 7 February 1812. He began Oliver Twist in 1837, followed by Nicholas Nickleby (1838) and The Old Curiosity Shop (1840-41). A Christmas Carol, appeared in 1843, David Copperfield in 1850. In later works, such as Bleak House (1853) and Little Dorrit (1857), Dickens''s social criticism became more radical and his comedy more savage. He published Hard Times in 1854, A Tale of Two Cities in 1859 and Great Expectations in 1860. His last novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, was never completed and he died on 9 June 1870.

Tiny tiny print type font.
Reviewed in the United States on May 19, 2020
The paperback copy’s font is ridiculously small. Who wants to curl up in bed with a microscope to read?

Font too small
Reviewed in the United States on October 26, 2019
The font in this book is way too tiny, as is the whole book is in fine prints. It is readable, but reading 600 pages of fine prints? Not for me. So I decided to return it as soon as I see the pages.

I''m sure the Kindle version is fine, but the printed version is printed in like 6 or 7 pitch type ( Approximately 1/2 the size of newspaper type, for comparison). To be honest, every word of all the works listed are in there, but you can''t read it without a magnifying glass. Great if you want to put on a shelf, bad if you actually want to read it.

After a friend gave me a quote from Dickens that I didn''t recognize, I purchased this bundle of books to reacquaint myself with Dickens. It wasn''t long before I remembered why I don''t read him very much.
The man can drag out a paragraph several pages long, bringing up multiple ideas that don''t really assist with the story. I have dyslexia and reading Dickens is torture, trying to keep up with the main theme in a tale while reworking the writing in my mind. I sincerely doubt I will finish this volume, and in my case, good riddance to poorly written rubbish.

What a pleasure it is to read a good book or six! After reading through this collection, the remaining works of CD are must reads.
Skip the introductions and notes. The former are - at times - salted with modern slants aimed towards the ridiculous and the latter - at times - tend to reveal events (in the literature) yet to be occur.
Plot, setting, and character are richly developed in each story.
For those who might think these books too "difficult" - horse hockey! It was pleasure to read "Great Expectations" without worrying about the color of some characters apparel or memorize the closing thoughts expressed in "ATOTC". In each story there arose a pinnacle of action - something unexpected - that caused this reader to halt in mild shock. Did that just happen? Oh my!
Listed in order of this reader''s favorites here are the books in this collection: A Tale of Two Cities/ / Bleak House / A Christmas Carol ( &c. ) / Oliver Twist / Hard Times / Great Expectations ; there is not a dud nor a near dud in the lot.

Beautifully bound collection
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 9, 2020
Got this for £66 which I think is a steal! Had my eye on it for almost a year and pounced when I saw the price reduced. Beautifully bound, will be a prized possession on the bookcase next to Austen.
