Publisher's Summary

"The most perfect of all the Dickens novels." (Virginia Woolf)
David Copperfield is the tale of a boy who loses his parents at an early age, escapes the torturous conditions of working for his pitiless stepfather, and eventually determines to make something of himself. With a little luck and a lot of help along the way from some of the most colorful characters ever penned, David overcomes to achieve all for which he aspires. Featuring an unforgettable gallery of characters, including the cantankerous Miss Betsey, the merciless stepfather Mr. Murdstone, the obsequiously penniless Mr. Micawber, and the treacherous Uriah Heap, it is a tale so luxuriant in setting, so fabulous in character, and so pure in intent that though it was written 150 years ago, we still cheer with David during his triumph and weep with him in his suffering.
"Like many fond parents, I have in my heart of hearts a favorite child. And his name is David Copperfield." (From the preface by Charles Dickens)
Public Domain (P)2013 B.J. Harrison

Edifying and interesting

This tale shows life just as it is - avarice is just that and not exalted. I appreciate how some of the experiences of David Copperfield encouraged me in my own life. The reader is excellent and does well at giving characters their own voices as well as having excellent vocal variety.

A treat!

What I love best about Charles Dickens' work as a whole is the style. Once you get adjusted to it, it becomes highly enjoyable. There are some very funny moments in the book and the narrater, B.J. Harrison, does a fantastic job with all the vocal characterizations. Everybody's voice is distinct which helps keep the many persons of the story separate and keeps the story clear. Copperfield's Aunt, Betsey Trotwood, is my favorite character, apart from David himself, she has some of the best lines in the whole book, particularly when addressing Uriah Heep. It takes some time for the story to pick up, but it is worth the wait and well worth a read.
