(Oxford Journal Clippings, 1 November2012)
"Pykett's chapter is preceded by a rewarding chapteron the literary culture of the day by Michael Hollington andfollowed by the final essay on 'Postcolonial Dickens'.As if to insist that any competition in the Dickens Companionindustry is essentially good-natured, John O. Jordan hascontributed this, rather wonderful, last word to close thebook."
(Notes and Queries, March 2010)
"Several of these pieces should be indispensable reading forundergraduates... Each of the three Companions to Charles Dickensnow available is a valuable resource for students, but Paroissien'sis certainly the richest, and-- with simultaneous electronicpublication- likely to be of most immediate and beneficialassistance to students."
