9780099540823: Dombey and Son (Vintage Classics)

Paul Dombey is an ambitious London merchant. He pins all his hopes for the future of his shipping firm on his fragile son whilst his daughter, Florence, goes unnoticed and neglected. It is only when the firm faces ruin, and Dombey is staring at a life of desolate solitude that Florence may finally be valued. Can this heartless businessman be redeemed? Dombey and Son is a delicious and lively satire about pride and its downfall.

Review:

"Dickens's most mature meditation on the ethics of capitalism is haunted by ambivalent images of railroads, progress and death" ( Guardian)

"Dickens' sentences, his bold, sentimental outcries addressed to the reader and his marvelously imagistic descriptions, are a part of the magical world that assaults and seduces any reader" ( Chicago Tribune)

"A thoroughly gripping affair...Guaranteed laughs, guaranteed tears" ( Daily Mail)

"'There's no writing against such power as this-one has no chance'" (William Makepeace Thackeray)

"Nothing seems more quintessentially British than Charles Dickens" (The Times)

Book Description:

A proud businessman is at the heart of this satire - Dombey and Son is funny, highly relevant and hugely enjoyable.
