This novel was first Serialised under the title
The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club between April 1836 and November 1837, when Dickens was in his mid-20s.
Mr Samuel Pickwick is the founder and chairman of the absurd Pickwick Club which consists Tupman, Snodgrass and Winkle who go through various highly amusing and often quite ridiculous adventures.
Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced.

Highly entertaining by Jason Stanley
This is my first (and hereinafter not my last) introduction to Dickens. I had no idea how much humour he employed in his writing that is so clever and well constructed. This is easily value for money when you consider that you get 32 hours of sheer entertainment for under £10. I will be downloading others as a result!
A spendid reading. The narrator subtly changes his voice for different characters without exaggerating, letting Dickens' words make their own impact. The tone is a shade laconic, perhaps, and the acoustic a touch on the dry side, but the quality is fine. A real bargain at £6.95.
