The intensely personal David Copperfield (widely regarded to be the most autobiographical of the author’s novels) is one of Dickens’ greatest works. We follow David Copperfield from birth and miserable childhood to inevitable tragedies, until he finally finds happiness later in life. Full of some of the most memorable characters in literary history. Nicholas Boulton’s depiction of the oily Uriah Heep and David Copperfield’s sinister stepfather, Murdstone, do the novel full justice.

Dickens would be proud
Mr. Boulton's reading was excellent...masterfully changing his accent and tone to portray the plethora of Dickens' wonderful characters.
Dickens' character development is so wonderful. He is a true wordsmith and a wonderful observer of human nature. This is one of my favorite books and each reading/listening strengthens my love of it.
Superb story read by a real master
Depressed When it Ended
I haven't read the print version, but I can only imagine that the audio version is so much better. Nicholas Boulton is my absolute favorite narrator, and I didn't think you could get much better than Grover Gardner. Hearing Nicholas Boulton read such a classic is like going to the theatre in the privacy of your home. I was depressed for days when the book ended.
Dickens' stories are always so rich. Full of adventure, full of charm, and full of intricacies. If you want a longer read, a story that you can sink your teeth into, then choose a Dickens classic.
Absolutely everything! I can't say enough good things about Nicholas Boulton's narration. He imbues each character with a life of it's own, and you forget that only one person in reading the story. He does an excellent job with female voices, and male narrators tend to make them sound ridiculous. I chose this book to listen to solely because Nicholas Boulton narrated it, and I was not sorry.
There were too many to mention.
Please listed to this audio book, you will not be disappointed.
