    " David Copperfield is one of my favourite books. I have two editions and both are luxury editions, just for collectors, so that tells you a bit about how much I love this novel. As it has been said before, the focus of the book is the life of David Copperfield; a life that sometimes is filled with sadness and grief, and other times with joy and pleasure. David, Dora, Pegotty, aunt Betsey, and Mr. Dick are just some of the various fascinating characters that Dickes introduces to us. Each of these characters is unique; they are flawed but endearing. Nonetheless, there are also some boring, lethargic characters that never feel very real. A character that I do not find interesting at all is Ines. Dickens tried to glorify her but to the point in which the reader feels she is unreal. Ines lacks passion, lacks wit, lacks life. While her counterpart, Dora, although imperfect, a bit dumb and childish was also very charming, loving and very self conscious. Dora acknowledged and embraced her limitations....that made her wise. She was dependent and ridiculously impractical but at the same time she was carefree and cheecky! Dora loved the attention but she was not particularly demanding and she really make efforts to improve. An insightful reader will agree that Dora is always genuine. Ines, on the other hand, is too mature, too responsible, to mother-like to be likeable; hence, what Dickens tries to depict as Ines's perfection is in fact, her main flaw! Ines's attitude is passive and unimaginative. Ines is the stereotype of a martyr... but a boring, unatractive, tedious martyr. A martyr we respect but can never admire or love... David Copperfield is a brilliant novel; however, at times one feels that Dickens overdid it because he created unnecesary characters that do not add much to the story but instead, distract and disturb us. Thus,I agree with those who say that he could have achieved more by writing less. Still, this book is a masterpiece, a truly delightful literary work! "

    " To be honest...the length of the book killed me.! But the book is amazing.! As you move towards the end...you see the typical romantic's touch there.! Good will be rewarded and the bas will be punished. This book is like sunshine in some places. The character foil is amazing, even their names suggest what they really are about. This book is going to stay with me for a long long time... :) "

    " 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 "

    " I hate to say it but this book needed an editor. For me parts of it were brilliant. Others not so much. "

    " This book is so funny, sarcastic, and emotional. So many fabulous people met, such sorrow and hardship. If I had another daughter I would certainly name her Betsey Trotwood Copperfield! "

    " so fun and rollicking! gets kind of draggy at the end. but the rest is delightful. as ross said, it's a little bit like "a series of unfortunate events." it did make me think a lot about class, gender, and subjectivity. interested to read some critical essays. "
