Dealings with the Firm of Dombey and Son: Wholesale, Retail and for Exportation is one of the best novels by Charles Dickens. This novel astonishes by the endless number of figures and life situations. There are not many novels in the world literature, apart from some later works by Dickens, that are so rich and diversified in colors as Dombey and Son. The small bourgeois characters as well as representatives of the London poor class are created by him with huge love. Mostly all of these people are strange, but their eccentric behavior, that is so funny, makes the characters close and sweet.
