I just finished reading Nicholas Nickleby, and so now I've read all of the novels of Charles Dickens.
NN was pretty good. A reasonably fast-moving story, some decent characters. However, it lacked the character eccentricity of some other novels, and the overarching story is not really all that interesting. And, it does use the "magic-inheritance-solves-all-problems" device so often used by Dickens.
