Dombey and Son is vintage Dickens and explores
the classic themes of betrayal, cruelty and
deceit. The novel follows the fortunes of
Dombey, a businessman par excellence, who
craves a son to inherit his enterprises. His
family, and especially his daughter, the sweet
and good-natured Florence, bear the brunt of
his frustrations.
Dombey’s dysfunctional relationships are
painted against a backdrop of social unrest in
industrialised London, which is populated by a
host of fascinating and memorable secondary
characters. The complete and unabridged novel
is brought spectacularly to life by veteran
reader David Timson.
