Please try again later. This book is attractively presented with short introductory passages before each chapter. In the course of this Dickens' life- story is concisely told. But what surprised me was that the Dickens' texts themselves were not brief aphoristic or humorous 'lines' but rather true excerpts of paragraph length or more. And that many of these were at least in my reading of them not that humorous or witty at all. However the long passages produced do truly give a sense of what Dickens writing was all about.

The Wicked Wit of Charles Dickens by Charles Dickens (, Hardcover) | eBay
Most of the chapters start off with an explanation of how the topic derived from his personal life, which is helpful to those who aren't as knowledgable about his life as some fans. Feb 19, C Moore rated it really liked it. A fun primer with a mix of blurbs and longer passages. Not a bad intro or, in my case, refresher for the Charles Dickens catalog. David Copperfield, Pickwick Papers, etc.
