Penguin Classics presents the audiobook adaptation of Charles Dickens' celebrated classic, David Copperfield, read by Nathaniel Parker.

Humorous, dramatic, ironic and tender, David Copperfield has always been one of Dickens's most popular novels. From his boyhood at the knee of his nurse Peggotty, to the cruelties of Salem House Academy and his youthful adoration of Dora Splendow, David begins to learn about life, the world, and the heart. His path to maturity is filled with memorable characters, such as the Micawbers, Uriah Heep, Steerforth and many more. Told as 'autobiography', David Copperfield draws deeply on Dickens's own life and was his own 'favourite child' among his books.

Part of a series of abridged, vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives.

    " Part of me hesitates to give this 5 stars, because some of it was sentimental stuff that makes me crazy, but much of it was indeed amazing. I can't remember when I last marked so many lines in a book. I don't think I've ever seen the equal of his descriptions of people and places, and his understanding of people feels deeply true. Plus I found out where the rock group Uriah Heep got its name! "

    " One of my favorites from Charles Dickens. I've heard that this book is at least partially autobiographical, and it would seem to be true, as it feels more personal than any of his other efforts. "

    " I feel like Dickens is a little uncool today because of his brazen sentimentality and crowd-pleasing tendencies. But the quality of the writing and plotting is always really high and, well, a little sentimentality and crowd-pleasing never killed anybody. Not as ambitious as Bleak House, so I won't give it the full 5, but almost everything here works except the unnecessarily rushed resolution. "

    " The first time I read this book I fell utterly, completely, head-over-heels, in love with David Copperfield. And as a result was roundly teased by my sisters for many years! Although my ardor may have diminished over the years, it has never quite faded. The compelling thing for me about this book is the intense detail of characterization, and the way in which, more than any of his other novels, it has the feel of Dickens' own autobiography. I feel like this is the life Dickens imagined himself leading - a life of gentle joys and quiet observation, in which despite the tears and losses along the way, a happy home is found in the end. For tragedy and drama Oliver Twist or A Tale of Two Cities are where Dickens shines best, but for emotional connection, David Copperfield will always be my favorite. "
