La obra maestra de Dickens. El mismo Dickens consideraba a David Copperfield no solo su obra preferida, sino quiza la mejor de todas las que habia escrito. Quiza y en parte, se deba a que muchos consideran que esta es una obra autobiografica, aunque con muchos elementos de fantasia mezclados en la narracion, en la cual a trozos de aventura real, siguen pedazos conmovedores y escenas domesticas descritas con esa mano maestra del gran escritor ingles. Los personajes van desde los mas detestables villanos hasta figuras de gran dulzura y estan descritos con mano maestra y dentro de un argumento en el que el interes no se pierde un momento. Muchos han colocado a David Copperfield en la lista de las grandes novelas de todos los tiempos y por eso se presenta orgullosamente en esta coleccion.

Many consider that this is an autobiographical work, although with many mixed elements of fantasy in the narration, where some moments of real life adventure are followed by harrowing descriptions and domestic scenes.

    " Started reading an un-picuted abridged version thinking the original would feel too long. Now that it's been read, curiosity beckons for a future reading of the entire piece. Agreed with reviews of falling for the characters: Love Mr Macawber's peculiar 'pecuniary' interests and long-windedness; Copperfield's compassion and level headedness through rough times; Betsy trotwood's dynamic, no nonsense personality. Couldn't wait to finish the book but then 1/4 of the way from the end I wanted to stay put in 19c England. "

    " Great novel, thoroughly enjoyable. My only complaint was that the length was hard to get through but the characters where interesting and gripping. I remember swearing in my mind because I was so outraged at the actions I certain characters "

    " Being my first Dickens book, i was initially a little naive to to the style, and i found it a little hard to get into for the first hundred pages or so. However, i am so pleased that a persevered with it, because i found myself creating attachments to the characters and truly 'getting into' it! I was surprised by some of the characters portrayal; i'd heard rumours that Dickens portrayed the female characters a boring and pathetic, such as was the social preconceptions at the time. However, Agnes, Little Emily and Rosa Dartle were all in my opinion some of the best characters in the book, with Agnes being a voice of wisdom and intelligence, with Rosa being feisty and independent and Emily having a slightly contraversial story line. I was however dissapointed in David's choice of wife; Dora was pathetic, and somewhat tedious to read about. I was a little dissapointed with the ending because i would have liked to see the horrible Uriah get more of what was coming to him. Despite that, and Dora, this book was excellent and therefore deserves a four out of five (a 4.5 if i could). "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
