This much-loved novel was, by Dickens' own admission, his 'favorite child'. It is easy to see why, with its colorful characters ranging from the repulsive Uriah Heep to the endlessly improvident Micawbers, and dominated throughout by the moving story of David's search for a family and a home.

Listener Opinions

    " I need to read more Dickens--the guy was an absolute genius. He sees inside and exposes both the darkest and most sublimely spiritual sides of human nature and I walk away from his works a better person--every time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Geni | 2/12/2014

    " I finally read this tome and can cross it off the list. I feel terrible for slamming such a beloved classic, but goodness, some 19th century authors could use a lot of words when fewer would do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret Clowry | 2/7/2014

    " Great winter read with several highlights. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Wellington | 2/2/2014

    " One of my favorite novels for character development as each chapter provides weight. Due to its sheer length the novel can be a real slog in the middle chapters. Fortunately the main characters including Uriah Heep are compelling and interesting enough to wade through. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steven | 1/25/2014

    " I'd like to make a joke about magic here, but Charles Dickens just doesn't deserve it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/21/2014

    " Good tale about a boy's journey and what he goes through to finally mature and figure out the secrets of life. One can relate to David as his experiences are similar to those of which all have gone through. The use of language was at times a bit too flowery and rambling for my taste (but, hey, that's Dickens). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Duane Bolin | 1/20/2014

    " My favorite novel. Have re-read four times. The ending still sends me into ecstasy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heavenlyharpstringsgmail.com | 1/18/2014

    " For Dickens lovers.... A good read into historical times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 1/1/2014

    " It was perfect. There was no climax that kept me from putting down the book and for some reason, that was perfect. It's a life story and it flows like life. The drama feels real, not overdone. It was fantastic. That's all I can really say. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mattpenne | 12/24/2013

    " A great book about the trials and tribulations of a sauntering-like boy's life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron Jasinski | 11/26/2013

    " Absolutely loved this book. A wonderful study of marriage, friendship, honor, and how to deal with the curve ball that life throws our way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jelle de Jong | 10/23/2013

    " prachtige schrijfstijl, soms grappig, maar niet zo hylarisch als Henry Fielding, soms wel wat te langdradig, de laatste 2-300 bladzijden was een heel klein beetje worstelen "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 7/20/2013

    " How could you not love David Copperfield? Funny and clever, as expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison Corin | 11/11/2012

    " Definitely one of the ten best books I've ever read. "

    " My new favorite Dickens novel! "

    " Dickens ues LOTS of words, but love his characters and the plots of his stories "

    " One of my favorite books "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marten | 12/18/2011

    " Quite a dissapointment after hearing so much about Dickens' storytelling capacity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sven (Mrs. Dean Winchester) | 11/25/2011

    " The second novel I ever read. Age 8-9. Ah Childhood! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Capaloff | 10/27/2011

    " Having now read the 14 completed Dickens novels this one is at the top for me. As ever, the characters are wonderful, humourous, larger than laugh, but there were several episodes here which brought tears to my eyes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deusprimus | 6/20/2011

    " Sometimes a bit rambling, but that is why we read Dickens! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan | 6/19/2011

    " I've read my share of books...and this is my favorite of all time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 6/17/2011

    " I found it to be rather tedious and i was unable to finish it though I got past the midway point.
    "Great Expectations" was much better. Date read is a guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Planetcall | 6/16/2011

    " An excellent sad story of a young boy. I read it around 10 years ago from now when I was in high school. Touches young hearts to make a memorable mark. I would love to read it all over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 6/15/2011

    " Whaddaya mean, you've never read any Dickens? What are you, crazy?? Read it, already!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rayme | 6/13/2011

    " Finished this and like all other Dickens, loved it from beginning to end. I just knocked off a star due to his wordiness. Less would have been more, but how many perfect books can one person write in a lifetime? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cameron | 6/8/2011

    " I honestly don't know why I like this book so much, not a great deal of plot per se, just a life story of a fairly normal but good person. I just kept finding myself drawn to each character and event. This book is somewhat ofan undertaking for me who is not much of a reader but well worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 6/8/2011

    " The plot was fairly predictable, but I felt like the plot was just a means to create some fantastic characters. There were some really beautiful moments, too. "

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.
