1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Detailed written report (4D Lee Ka Man)

Title: Nicholas Nickleby Publisher: Penguin Active Reading
Author: Charles Dickens No. of page: 76

Nicholas and his parent – Mrs Nickleby and his sister, Kate Nickleby. They lived together, and they found Uncle Ralph to help them. Nicholas had a job in Dotheboys Hall. He met a friend – Smike, they were good friends, because Nicholas helped him to have a good life. But finally Smike died. They were sad. Also, Nicholas loved a lady, called Madeline Bray. He had found his love at last and they got married.

After Nicholas father died. Nicholas had no money, no job and a family to support. His only hope is Uncle Ralph. But Ralph is a cold-hearted money-leader with unpleasant, dangerous friend. Ralph gave Nicholas a job, but the job was very bad, Nicholas saw that the schoolmaster was vicious.

The main male character / hero is called Nicholas Nickleby. He is very helpful, because he helped Smike to have a happy life and let him leave the Dotheboys Hall.

The main female character / heroine is called Madeline Bray. She is a beautiful girl. She is good at art and she loves drawing. Nicholas loves her.

My favourite character is Smike. Because Smike is hard working and he is friendly. Although he was ill, his heart is also full of hope, he wasn’t afraid of dying. He was very optimistic.

The most impressive episode/scene is Happiness at Last. After an arduous time. Nicholas can find his love at last. Frist time Madeline didn’t like Nicholas. Also, she will marry Frank. But after she listened to Nicholas’s conversation, she was very impressed. And they got married finally.

Comments/Reflections: I love this book very much. I love Nicholas Nickleby too. I think he is very brave. He was not afraid of anything. He will help his sister, help Smike. When he saw some wrong things, he will stop it. Also, I think this story is interesting. Because I can see Nicholas, his parents and his friend’s ups and downs. Finally they all were happy.
