David Copperfield is the story of a boy growing to maturity in the affairs of the world and of the heart, surrounded by some of Dickens' most memorable characters: David's eccentric great-aunt, Miss Betsey Trotwood; the ever-optimistic Mr Micawber; jolly Peggotty and her willing husband Barkis; the charming Steerforth; the ever so 'umble Uriah Heep; and the foolishly innocent Dora.

But will David finally find happiness with the faithful Agnes Wickfield, whom he has known since childhood? And is her own future secure, threatened as it is by Uriah Heep, her father's clerk?

This full-cast audio dramatisation of the Dickens classic stars Miriam Margolyes, Timothy Spall, Phil Daniels, and Sheila Hancock.

    " I've lost count of how many times I've read this and it still gives me goosebumps. "

    " 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. "

    " There is a rich tapestry of books in this world, each with its own aim, destination, destiny, etc. However, there are very few books in the world that leave you a better person than the one who picked up that particular book. Without the slightest amount of doubt or second-guessing, David Copperfield is one of, perhaps the, perfect example of that type of book. David Copperfield is...There are not enough compliments or just words in the world to explain the beauty, the perfection of this masterpiece. Apologies are kindly asked for the slightly dramatic reaction; however, feelings of truth accompany "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Delise | 1/13/2014

    " One the best of Dickens -- before his stories get even darker. Basically his autobiography before his more realistic autobiography in Great Expectations. "

    " His poetic masterpiece, although honestly I consider Bleak House a much better novel. "

    " Enjoyed this book way more than I thought I would. Maybe a little cheesy in places, and wraps up a little too neatly, but you wouldn't have it any other way. Genuine classic. "

    " I am really enjoying reading Charles Dickens these days. I guess a little maturity & moving away from the endless nit-picking of literature classes has helped tremendously. "

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.
