The last in a fabled line of otherworldly aristocracy, the Lords of Satyr are born to wealth, power, and a talent for sensual delight that mere mortals only dream of. Commanded to marry, these passionate men will travel to Rome, Venice, and Paris--and along the way will explore desires both shamelessly wicked and blissfully divine. . . He Had Sworn To Take A Proper Wife. He Hadn't Bargained On Meeting His Match. . . Nicholas looks very much like what he is--the handsome, successful heir to a vineyard in Tuscany. But Nicholas is much more, for he is one of the last in an ancient line of satyr men. And the dying king of ElseWorld wants him not only to marry, but to wed one of the king's own daughters--a half-human, half-faerie woman unaware of her heritage.

One of the most entertaining novels ever. This Dickens book is up there with Great Expectations and David Copperfield as one of his most enjoyable novels.The social axe that Dickens had to grind in this story is mans injustice to children. Modern readers my feel that his depiction of Dotheboys Academy is too melodramatic. Alas, unfortunately, it was all too real. Charles Dickens helped create a world where we cant believe that such things happen. Dickens even tells us in an introduction that several Yorkshire schoolmasters were sure that Wackford Squeers was based on them and threatened legal action.The plot of Nicholas Nickleby is a miracle of invention. It is nothing more than a series of adventures, in which Nicholas tries to make his way in the world, separate himself from his evil uncle, and try to provide for his mother and sister.There are no unintersting characters in Dickens. Each one is almost a charicature. This book contains some of his funniest characters.To say this is a melodrama is not an insult. This is melodrama at its best. Its a long book, but a fast read.
