The Life And Adventures Of Martin Chuzzlewit

PDF EBook by Charles Dickens

EBook Description

This may be Dickens' most underrated book. The Life And Adventures Of Martin Chuzzlewit PDF EBook It's right in the middle of what I like to call his forgotten period which is made up of three books, written consecutively, which I think are commonly ignored; download; Barnaby Rudge, Martin Chuzzlewit, and Dombey and Son.

This novel is interesting because a lot of it actually takes place in America, as opposed to England. It's written from Dickens' personal voyage to the States in the months prior to writing this novel. And guys, oh my god, Dickens rips the shit out of America. He says he gave a "satirical" view of the US but guys, Dickens basically mocks America and Americans and it's honestly the best thing. There's also a great perspective on slavery and the deep South in this novel (spoilers: Dickens' doesn't tolerate either).

Why the average rating then Barry? Well, because the second- PDFhalf of this novel exists. They come back from America and then it turns into a murder mystery. It's honestly as if Dickens' just stitched on a completely different novel to the end of this book. Eh, it's kinda disappointing but this is what you get with serialised novels.

Overall, I liked this novel though. The America bits and the scathing social commentary make up for the saggy second half. I still think this is criminally overlooked in his canon though. Like this book? Read online this: Charles Dickens, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus.
