Publisher's Summary

David Copperfield is the story of a boy growing to maturity in the affairs of the world and of the heart, surrounded by some of Dickens' most memorable characters: David's eccentric great-aunt, Miss Betsey Trotwood; the ever-optimistic Mr Micawber; jolly Peggotty and her willing husband Barkis; the charming Steerforth; the ever so 'umble Uriah Heep; and the foolishly innocent Dora.
But will David finally find happiness with the faithful Agnes Wickfield, whom he has known since childhood? And is her own future secure, threatened as it is by Uriah Heep, her father's clerk?
This full-cast audio dramatisation of the Dickens classic stars Miriam Margolyes, Timothy Spall, Phil Daniels, and Sheila Hancock.

Dramatised version is a treasure

I bought this version of the book on tape years ago and loved it. It's one of the few books I've listened to over and over. I've searched everywhere for a cd version and am thrilled to find it here on Audible. The voice actors, the presentation, the overall performance including sound effects and all is a treat. The characters come to life. Though the story is abridged, it doesn't feel like it has been shortened. It feels like it has extra depth.

Brilliant actors and great story

What made the experience of listening to David Copperfield (Dramatised) the most enjoyable?

What a treat to listen to Miriam Margolyes and Timothy Spall. They really brought out the humour and delightful (even if scoundrelish) characters

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes hard to stop

Any additional comments?

Please get these actors to do more audio books. And you can't go wrong with Dickens

outstanding classic drama

This dramatization is superb.This wonderful cast brings every moment of Dickens to life.
Miss Margolyes deserves to be honoured in some way as she is outstanding not just in this ,but in every aspect of her work.

Dickens and BBC at their Best!

Would you consider the audio edition of David Copperfield (Dramatised) to be better than the print version?

For me all the characters are brought to life and are really well defined by the excellent cast.

What other book might you compare David Copperfield (Dramatised) to, and why?

Bleak House is another roller coaster of a book that has so many complex characters that are all the better for being dramatised. So easy get back into the book once you restart your listening.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Narrators are the key for me, not all narrators are blessed with skills to deliver a believable and entertaining experience. For example the likes of Anton Lesser is the finest exponents of the art. There are others who can make or break a story. It's an art.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

David meeting his aunt for the first time and appealing for her surpport.
