Here is a Dickens book I could get into! Fascinating historical details.

This publication is Bad News in being overly chopped/rewritten, reedited, etc. for 2 publications that were published and have been successfully available for hundreds of years, by an authour (Dickens) who was writing for and about the common people of London at that time.

But I can only assume that such an apparent mucking up of these works and placing them between prettily patterned and coloured covers is required to sell yourself as seeming to be republishing these same works to appeal to the 'common people' of North America, and to turn a profit on the exercise.

I have read quite a number of Dickens' titles, but have to say that this one is one of my favourites.
