The Joy of Audible

The joy of Audible is that you can hear a book read in it's entirety.
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.

Excellent

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.

Perfect narrator for one of the best classics.

Reading David Copperfield is always a great pleasure, but listening to a superb reader makes is doubly so. I have listened to four different people narrate this classic, and Jarvis stands tall as the best. He simply offers an outstanding performance. There's no need to give a synopsis of David Copperield, I just want to encourage Audible members to choose this version since the reader makes it more enjoyable than other performers who have narrted the classic tale. Download it and travel back in time to the Dickensian world.

David Copperfield - Perfection

This audio book is, in my opinion, quite simply the most rewarding listening possible.

David Copperfield is rightly considered a classic. It is a wonderful book that sweeps through a life and has such characters in it as would pitch the listener between pity, anger and farce. I lost count of the times I laughed out loud and on several occasions I was moved almost to tears.

This reading enhances the reputation of classic in almost every way. Superb narration, diction and tempo, consistent and effortless characterizations and a pretty good recording make this audio book the highlight of my Audible association.

Can't recommend this any higher
