Publisher's Summary

’Please, Mr Murdstone! Don’t beat me! I’ve tried to learn my lessons, really I have, sir!’ sobs David. Although he is only eight years old, Mr Murdstone does beat him, and David is so frightened that he bites his cruel stepfather’s hand. For that, he is kept locked in his room for five days and nights, and nobody is allowed to speak to him. As David grows up, he learns that life is full of trouble and misery and cruelty. But he also finds laughter and kindness, trust and friendship . . . and love. An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Charles Dickens original by Clare West.

Contemporary classic

I wish I had read this book in my school says so that I could dissect it with a group. I know it's said to be one of Charles Dicken's own favorites and the characters are interesting, however it was an ok read for me. The narrator had limitations in his voice, a good narrator and often comical but lacking somewhat.
