David Copperfield

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.2 stars; 60 reviews)

"David Copperfield" or "The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery" was first published in 1850. Like all except five of his works, it originally appeared in serial form. Many elements within the novel follow events in Dickens' own life, and it is probably the most autobiographical of all of his novels. It is also Dickens' "favorite child."

Great book in need of a few better readers.

(4 stars)

The book itself is truly at home amoung the greats of all time, but a few readers made it harder than it should ever be to follow along and truly enjoy. If you bear with the rough s Ots I feel you will be well compensated by your enjoyment of this classic even though it is hampered by a few poor readers here.

(4.5 stars)

This is a classic Dickens novel with inspirational characters and vile villains. Ultimately with some happy endings. I had heard this tale was somewhat autobiographical. There are many sad parts on the journey. But the happiest part is near the end.

(1 stars)

I couldn't even handle listening to the entire first chapter. I appreciate the readers efforts, but he lacks a real understanding of English. so it is extremely hard to get into the story.

5 Stars for Dickens

(5 stars)

Thanks for your effort reader. For those who prefer an accent closer to the country from whence it came, there is at least one more recording.

(0.5 stars)

Very, very difficult to enjoy this book because of the readers. First chapter was hard to understand the reader and it just gets worse.

Awful narration

(0.5 stars)

I couldn't get past 60 secs because I hate the reader's accent!!! Another book, destroyed by a rubbish narrator!!!!


(5 stars)

I completely enjoyed listening to this timeless classic! Excellent readers. Marvelous novel!

(2.5 stars)
