“Read in the order they were written, the Sketches give off the terrific air of a newly minted talent discovering what it can do. While the opening tranche of "tales" derive from the work of forgotten contemporary humorists, the pieces of London reportage that he began to contribute to the Morning Chronicle in autumn 1834 are like nothing else in pre-Victorian journalism: bantering and hard-headed by turns, hectic and profuse, falling over themselves to convey every last detail of the metropolitan front-line from which Dickens sent back his dispatches.” D.J. Taylor, The Guardian

“Dickens’ earliest published pieces are gems—well-written, insightful, bursting with energy, and, most importantly, absolutely hilarious. I’ve always said I can forgive anyone anything if they can make me laugh. I will forgive Dickens whatever needs forgiving because no other writer makes me laugh out loud (I mean milk-spurting-through-the-nose laugh out loud) the way he can. Even in these earliest works his sarcastic observational humor is spot-on. The sketches are exactly what the young Dickens wrote them to be—individual pieces that were either short stories or come-as-you-are journalism. That’s all. If we take them at face value then we can appreciate the first glimmers of literary genius in a man who was so very young when he started.” Meredith Allard , Copperfield Review

“This is a collection of Dickens' earliest writing in the form of short sketches and tales. Written in the 1830s, they focus on early 19th-century London and include depictions of both the impoverished (and the difficulties they face) and the newly prosperous middle class just beginning to take shape. Also included about 50 original illustrations.” Bucket

“Sketches by Boz is the earliest work of Dickens, contains of sketches of everyday life in London the 19th century. It can be categorized as literary journalism, although there are several fictional stories too. Dickens wrote from his own observations on people's characters, habits and cultures, as well as streets and amusement places. The sketches are thorough, and the illustrations by George Cruikshank sharpen them.” Fanda
