David Copperfield - by Charles Dickens  

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

David Copperfield is a classic novel written by the beloved author, Charles Dickens.

The book unfurls an exuberant rendition of the adventures of David as we face interesting characters and a well developed plot. The story continues with a well balanced blend of comedy, tragedy, treachery, love, honesty and brimming with energy.

The Plot

This is another beautiful rendition of the adventures of a juvenile soul. Deserted by a helpless mother and compelled by an imperious father, David finally decides it is time…time he lived his own life!

It takes you on a a ride through the life of young David, his hatred for his step-father and Aunt, Mr. Edward Murdstone and Jane. They torment him and finally send him to a boarding school where David becomes friends with Tommy Traddles and James Steerforth.

Then the novel returns again with a more matured David, after his mother’s and new-born half brother’s death. He takes work at a factory and the book describes the harsh cruelty of life. When his landlord, Wilkins Micawber goes to prison after bankruptcy, David flees from London as he has nobody.

My Thoughts

Turning the last page, this book gave me a satisfied smile and a naive sadness that it was over. This is a wonderful recipe of life with all you can ask for. A trifle bit sour but magically unfolds an indelible taste of sweetness and exquisite happiness. I am you all will enjoy it so why not pick a copy now?
