Publisher's Summary

David Copperfield was Dickens' favorite novel. Strikingly autobiographical in its childhood scenes, it relates David's history from birth to manhood, and the classic Dickensian characters he meets on his journey of self-knowledge: Mr. Micawber, the Peggottys, Betsey Trotwood, Steerforth and Uriah Heep among many.


Audible Editor Reviews

Simon Callow narrates this well-known novel by Charles Dickens, first published serially in 1850 as a kind of fictional autobiography. David Copperfield, based in large part on Dickens’ own life story, follows its titular protagonist through the events of his early years and all the way on to his eventual happy ending in adulthood.
Callow’s thoughtful performance truly brings this audiobook to life, with his careful pacing tying the many different strands of this work neatly together; Callow also proves himself adept at inhabiting Copperfield, drawing out his most notable characteristics with well-considered acting choices which introduce new depth to this old classic.
