Listen to David Copperfield - The Personal History, Experience and Observations of on your phone!
“the most perfect of all the Dickens novels” – Virginia Woolf David Copperfield is the tale of 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 step-father 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
