Publisher's Summary

"I am born" famously begins David Copperfield. However, this is a birth that is blighted by its timing: 12 o'clock on a Friday night at precisely the time the clock began to strike. Such untimeliness means that David was destined to be unlucky in life and would be privileged to see ghosts and spirits, a dubious privilege. In David Copperfield, ghosts and other supernatural phenomena are invoked in relation to a range of male characters and situations. David is haunted by the memories of people and places he's been before. It is in the character of Uriah Heep, however, and in David's perception of and relationship with him, when the story is at its most supernatural.

One of the best voices ever!

Paul Scofield is one of my all-time favorite actors, and his voice is perfect for narration- especially Dickens! I wish this was unabridged- that's the only reason I gave four stars instead of five!
