I was admittedly intimidated by the length of this work and have passed reading this book in the past. However, my like of all things Dickens drove me to purchase this book and I have to say, it is one of the most delightful reads in my experience. Simon Vance is an amazing narrator and brings this story to life. The story is so full of richness and experience. I highly recommend this book.

This is Dickens at its very best and I am savoring every chapter. I thought I knew the book from screen versions but there is so much more to enjoy in this unabridged recording. Simon Vance is the perfect reader and brilliantly brings to life the personalities of the characters in the way he reproduces the dialogue by maintaining a perfect balance of idiosyncracy and credibility.

David Copperfield is a favourite of mine and this audio version definitely does it justice.
The narrator has an understated style but still does a fantastic job of bringing all of Dickens's characters to life.
His depiction of Dora completely changed my previous (rather uncharitible) perspective on her character and made me understand how David fell in love with her childlike charm.
Daniel Peggoty was exactly as I'd imagined, as was his sister, David's Aunt Betsy, and the foolish and melodramatic Micawbers. Traddles's kindness and good nature shine throughout. The narrator's take on David himself hits the perfect balance of sincerity and gentle self deprecating humour.
All in all this is a lovely audio version that remains true to the classic tale.
I loved this - so beautifully written, and an engaging tale with fantastic characters throughout. Wish I could do it all again!
