The joy of Dickens is that he gives us so many great and memorable characters, Uriah Heep, Mr Macawber, Barkiss, Peggety, Betsie Trotwood and many more in this wonderful book.
The joy of Martin Jarvis is that he brings every Dickens character to life in wonderful clarity.
In this reading of David Copperfield you get a massive 35 hours of every scene of this incomparable and gripping story.
I had to turn off the story from time to time but was always eager to find out what would happen as the drama twists and turns in every chapter.
Thank you Audible for the complete story.

This is a superb audiobook full of humour as well as sadness. It is peopled with wonderful and memorable characters and Martin Jarvis marvellous reading brings them alive.

I was forced to read this book at school when I was obviously far too young and did not 'get' the humour. What a mistake! Only now, after 40 years, was I tempted to try it again. I am now off to get other Dickens audio books!

I highly recommend this book to you . . . it is just made to be read aloud and I can think of no better person than Martin Jarvis to do so.
