    " Someone said to me, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" and I thought (again) that this was the finest opening to a novel ever! It was from Great Expectations of course but I immediately went out and got David Copperfield from Charles Dickens. For some reason this novel has eluded me as I never read it. It was fantastic. One disappointment however, was the production value. There were points in the book where the volume went so low that I couldn't hear it. Nothing I could do to raise the volume. "

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.
