perfect of all the Dickens novels” – Virginia Woolf
Copperfield is the tale of boy who loses his parents at an
early age, escapes the torturous conditions of working for his
pitiless stepfather, and eventually determines to make something of
himself. With a little luck and a lot of help along the way from
some of the most colorful characters ever penned, David overcomes
to achieve all for which he aspires.
unforgettable gallery of characters, including the cantankerous
Miss Betsey, the merciless step-father Mr. Murdstone, the
obsequiously penniless Mr. Micawber, and the treacherous Uriah
Heap. It is a tale so luxuriant in setting, so fabulous in
character, and so pure in intent, that though it was written 150
years ago, we still cheer with David during his triumph and weep
with him in his suffering.

Great book, and well narrated!
From Anonymous of Durham, North Carolina on 7/14/2016.
I was never a huge fan of Dickens, but something about BJ's previous readings of him captured my interest. This was a great read/listen. The character voices really make it come to life. It's a great meditation on the nature of attachment, and Dickens' treatment of David's childhood experience and its evolution into maturity is priceless. Highly recommended for fans of Victorian fiction!
From Shirley Williams of Searcy, Arkansas on 4/3/2016.
I'm pretty sure we read an excerpt from this work in high school but somehow I came away with a "ho hum" opinion of it. Nothing could be farther from the truth! BJ has brought out beauty of it in a magnificent way and all the voices are masterfully done. You can actually feel the love when Mr. Peggotty speaks. I didn't want the story to end. Thank you, BJ.
The best book ever!
From Julie Steele of Santa Monica, California on 11/25/2015.
David Copperfield is the best book ever, read by the best narrator ever! You have GOT to listen to this book. You will fall in love with the characters, even the evil Uriah Heep! And you will get to know the characters because B.J. becomes each character.Utter bliss and a story you will carry with you through life.
Couldn't stop listening
From JDS of Annandale, Virginia on 4/26/2015.
I didn't count them, but this book must have 30 or 40 characters - men, women, old, young. Mr Harrison has created each one uniquely. The character of Mr. Micawber is priceless.
From Danielle Rice of Red Wing, Minnesota on 3/25/2015.
How can one man do so many voices (and keep track of them all)? I've been listening to this production for a while now, and I am amazed at the talent and quality of this audio production.
