Publisher's Summary

Penguin Classics presents the audiobook adaptation of Charles Dickens' celebrated classic, David Copperfield, read by Nathaniel Parker.
Humorous, dramatic, ironic and tender, David Copperfield has always been one of Dickens's most popular novels. From his boyhood at the knee of his nurse Peggotty, to the cruelties of Salem House Academy and his youthful adoration of Dora Splendow, David begins to learn about life, the world, and the heart. His path to maturity is filled with memorable characters, such as the Micawbers, Uriah Heep, Steerforth and many more. Told as 'autobiography', David Copperfield draws deeply on Dickens's own life and was his own 'favourite child' among his books.
Part of a series of abridged, vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives.
Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.

Wonderful narration...but beware, it's abridged

I love Nathaniel Parker as a narrator, and that was the main reason I ordered this book. I didn't even notice that it said abridged below the title. Big mistake. I thought the book seemed awfully disjointed and was relieved to see that it wasn't Dickens but the abridgment to blame. My fault for not noticing, but really Nathaniel Parker's narration made it almost worth it.
