“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read.” The Guardian

"I think that Chuzzlewit is in a hundred points immeasurably the best of my stories" Charles Dickens

“The most sheerly funny of all Dickens's novels and the comic characters and scenes are written with a vigour and brio which is the equal of anything else in his oeuvre. I would go so far as to claim that, in Chuzzlewit, you find the most sustained passage of comic writing in English literature, namely chapters eight and nine when the Pecksniff family go to London . . . You will laugh out loud at Martin Chuzzlewit – the comedy travels effortlessly across the 170 years since it was written – and for that reason alone it deserves to be ranked among the greats.” William Boyd, The Guardian

“A very good book. Full of the typical cast of disreputable rogues and lovable good-hearted people engaged in all kinds of schemes. This book is a one-of-a-kind Dickens novel in that the main character does a turn in the United States of America for a time (with disastrous results).” Christopher H.

MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT is one of the most profound, exciting, funny, and rich novels of all time. It has been made into film and television adaptations and captivated generations of readers. This is Dickens’ own favourite book, presented as it was meant to be read, with all the original illustrations.
