NOVEMBER 2013

In Charles Dickens’  first (and, I find, most endearing) book, we follow
the  ludicrous Mr. Pickwick and friends as they ramble  about England
to “observe things” for the club that they are a part of.  Along the way
they meet up  with the quintessential Dickensian array of insane
characters. The format of  having them wandering about without a clear
purpose besides observation really gives Dickens the chance to stretch
his legs comedically. hilarious, even for Dicken, though it is equally
wise. I would not recommend it on that basis alone. It contains some of
his best social commentary, a thing which he became well known for,
mocking a decadent aristocratic class that is just a blown up version of
those we see today.
