Review quote

"Here, once again, is the mark of a great writer ... we are captivated by ingenious word-building on every page ... As Dodger's triumphant path ultimately brings him honour from the very highest rank of society, we cannot help but cheer not only for his success, but also for the success of this ebullient, funny and delightful novel." Guardian "Wonderful." Daily Mail "Dodger feels fresh, vibrant and full of energy, a triumph that should be celebrated as yet another glorious gift from Narrativia." SFX "[A] superb novel ... full of eccentric characters and carefully detailed London scenes, the tale embodies both Dickens's love for the common man and a fierce desire for social justice." Publishers Weekly "It's a masterwork from a treasure and hero of a writer, and it will delight you." -- Cory Doctorowshow more
