It is a little book written four-handedly in 1857 by two friends: Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins. The first part is better, where the English sense of humor, nonchalance and entertainment stand out… The English customs are described with great detail, including some that would escape a poor observer. Another merit of the book is the way it is written, that is, the descriptions and the literary construction. The substance and the form go together very well. It is fun and pleasant, and it contains rich literature. It is a volume that readers with a taste for English would appreciate. Of course, it requires having a dictionary at hand to consult many unknown terms.
