At the center of Martin Chuzzlewit is Martin himself, very old, very rich, very much on his guard. What he suspects (with good reason) is that every one of his close and distant relations, now converging in droves on the country inn where they believe he is dying, will stop at nothing to become the inheritor of his great fortune. Having unjustly disinherited his grandson, young Martin, the old fellow now trusts no one but Mary Graham, the pretty girl hired as his companion

This, to date, is my least favorite Dickens novel (I only have 2 more to go to have read them all). Many of his books take a good while to have the story lines come together, for something to "happen." This one took nearly the entire length! It was a struggle to get through the endless pages of scenery descriptions and nonsensical monologues, which I often plowed through on the assumption that they would turn out to offer a clue or some other purpose, and which mostly turned out to be nothing but Dickens exercising his knack for description and dialog, to amuse himself. The scenes that took place in America were interesting for their insight into what the U.S. looked like in those days, especially to a foreigner (it looked mostly ridiculous!). Other than that, this novel was tedious.

1843 was the year that Dickens decided to explore the potential psychological changes that a person may undergo. In his well known classic " A Christmas Carol' we follow the life of his the author's tragic hero as he undergoes a life review, past, present and future. We, as readers, are caught up in this drama because of the constants that Dickens has shown in his earlier works; flowing descriptions, fast actions and dialogue, the quick dash to a moralistic ending and, lastly, the author's penchant for `happily ever after' endings. This work was, and will remain, his classic work in the novella format.

The other work that was done this year with a similar aim in mind was "Martin Chuzzlewit". Unfortunately, our renowned author was off the mark in this quest. While Scrooge's transformation was transparent through the spiritual visitations, old Martin's took place over and extended period of time and only done through the actions of his adopted girl, Mary, and done completely out of the reader's purview. This difference leads the first to seem as a natural part of an ongoing sequence whereas the second is awkward, lacks a reality base and requires the reader to totally shift his conclusion about the book title's character at the near finish of the novel. In `A Christmas Carol' we have a wide variety of believable and endearing characters who show a vast array of positive human qualities. From the Crachits we see humble grace, from the nephew we find familial love, and from Fezziwig we find professional honor and grace. "Martin Chuzzlewit", on the other hand takes all these and other uplifting qualities of human life and places them in a single, awkward and less-than-handsome character known as Tom Finch. Yes, I realize that the author was simply pointing out that the true value of life's meaning can be found in the most unlikely of persons, but Dickens did it to such an extreme that it falls off the far side of the table called `reality'. By overly saturating us with Tom and his virtues, the author's important character lesson quickly loses its credibility. Lastly, unlike the novella, the action in this 800+ page tome is very limited and/or non-existent. It reads more like a Victorian soap opera than it does like Dickens's more commanding and directive works. "The Pickwick Papers" and this work are the only two novels written by Dickens that appear as they were presented to his reading public; as a series of installments that occurred over a one year period. This, too, adds to the awkwardness of this book when taken as a whole.

I have read "A Christmas Carol" numerous times and plan to do the same in the future. Although both this and "Martin Chuzzlewit" attempt to portray the same message, I do not see myself ever rereading the latter. It is far too cumbersome and lacks a firm thematic directive throughout..............

Wonderful reading by the late Frederick Davidson of a marvellous novel. Certain fine novelists came close to certain aspects of Dickensian style, such as Trollope and Collins, even Tolstoy, who was a great fan; but there was no one quite like Dickens. The benefit of hearing his novels read by either Davidson or the sublime Simon Vance, is that the reader can hear the different accents of British English, and American English too, in this particular book, which adds great depth and dimension to the characters. Highly recommended.
Wat!?
The most obvious feature of the book from the start is how long it is. And it is long for a reason. The dialogue of the many characters and the descriptions of the characters, the surroundings, environment, and emotions are seemingly never ceasing. I would take issue with the descriptions of America with regard to geography. The fictional location of Eden in the United States was impossible for me to imagine from the description of the trip and what awaited Mark and Martin. The characterizations of the political attitudes of America seemed sufficient.
Still the plot seemed complicated enough for me to wonder where it led and to keep reading. I did get to the end and wondered why Dickens did not spend more time writing and developing the finish. As it is, I wished that I had given up about 50 pages earlier.

I'll admit, I'm biased because Charles Dickens is my favorite classical writer. No one tells a story with the most colorful of characters and wit in them like he does. Parts of this book are laugh out loud and what I love about Dickens is that he sees right through people for what they are and his barbs are aimed well. I think he must have just made a trip to the US when he wrote this book as he sends his lead character there to "find himself" but right from the start, you are drawn into and introduced to a real "rogues gallery". I found the ending to be a little trite, and this isn't his best book in my opinion, but it's a great read and a must for any Dickens lover.

How can you NOT love Charles Dickens? Even though I don't rate this as one of his better efforts (the ending is really too contrived), it's a notable work for the more emotionally evocative descriptions of place, the blistering critique of the United States (for which Dickens apologizes in his post script) and the characteristically rich,convoluted, and whimsical use of the English language which makes us all love Dickens so much. The Kindle edition is clean and free of typos. It's also FREE. What's not to love?
