Dickens called David Copperfield his "favourite child," and many critics consider the novel to be one of his best depictions of childhood. Set in early Victorian England against a backdrop of great social change, Dickens acutely observed the phenomena of the Industrial Revolution and used them as the canvas on which he painted the novel. Many consider David Copperfield to be the author’s finest work.

The story is a classic, dickens' favourite. The narration, by Peter Batchelor, is deep and his fruity voice brings the many characters to life.
The death of Dora is particularly well narrated and is one of many moving scenes contained within this tour de force
In terms of an enjoyable scene I would look no further than the come uppance of Uriah Heap. A perfect climax to one of Dickens's most despicable characters.
Classic story spoiled by poor editing
Lots of poor editing where the voice tone is clearly different, and new sentences starting very quickly after the previous, made the story difficult to follow in places really spoiled what is an excellent tale. I have not experienced this with any audible book before.
