Left penniless at his father’s death, Nicholas Nickleby and his mother and sister turn to their wealthy uncle Ralph for support. But Ralph is a cruel usurer who despises Nicholas’s open-hearted character and despatches him to teach at Dotheboys Hall, run by the grotesque Wackford Squeers. Appalled, Nicholas rebels against the cruelty there and determines to take care of his family and his new friend, the helpless and abandoned Smike.

Brimful of brilliant comedy, peopled by scores of memorable characters and touched by powerful satire against injustice, Nicholas Nickleby established Dickens as the finest novelist in English.


Review By Susan Offner,Sound Commentary,April 2012

Distinguished British stage, film and television actor David Horovitch’s theatrical, fully voiced reading of this classic is no less than superb. He has vivid and believable voices for each of Dickens’ colorful characters and his voice is rich, his intonation clear and his timing impeccable. This long audiobook it will provide hours of enjoyment for a wide audience. © 2012 Sound Commentary Read complete review
