Nicholas Nickleby

Nicholas Nickleby

Not just a romance, but a tale of true love for humanity, you have a desire to care for both soulmates and fellow earth dwellers. You will stop at nothing to protect those around you, even at great cost to yourself.

Dombey and Son

Dombey and Son

A heartbreaking story of a girl trapped in a home obsessed with primogeniture, this story is about true love, regardless of status. You know what love looks like, where to find it, and how valuable it is, waiting for it through hopeless hardships, knowing it never dies.

Our Mutual Friend

Our Mutual Friend

A commentary on how money and status affect the lives and attitudes of even low class citizens, this book has so many twists, it's one to get read as quickly as possible! You wouldn't mind having a little bit of wealth to your name, but know how to be humble, believing the best gifts are the ones you give.

Barnaby Rudge

Barnaby Rudge

Perhaps the least well known of Dickens' novels, this book demonstrates that even in the name of good, mass protest can become anarchy, destroying the lives of innocent bystanders. You want the best for people, *all* people. You are the mediator of your friends, not bound up in the drama of your life, but in bringing about peace between those around you.

Bleak House

Bleak House

Bleak House is a commentary on the social and legal systems of Victorian England, through the perspective of Esther, an orphan, and her guardian and fellow wards. You are a faithful friend, speaking truth into the lives of those around you, even when it's hard, but also going to great lengths to make them happy.

Little Dorrit

Little Dorrit

Not your typical rags-to-riches story, follow Amy Dorrit through the circle of her life. You don't let external circumstances change who you are internally, because dreams are dreams, and love is love, regardless of wealth or status or age.

Martin Chuzzlewit

Martin Chuzzlewit

In this novel, Dickens jabs at the hypocrisies of people and even entire nations. You are a genuine person: you may have secrets, but you live today like you have nothing to hide. Your kindness is real, and even your faults are lovable because you acknowledge you have them and work to be better.

Hard Times

Hard Times

Hard Times is, predictably, a depressing tale of pain and labor. You may have come through some hard times yourself, but since you have made it out alive, you have conquered, and even if your own ending is less than happy, you do what you can to help others achieve theirs.
