An Insight into Dickens' Own Life

by Leslie on May 14, 2011

This book is fiction, but has in it enough autobiographical elements to be interesting. The first person coming-of-age motif -- also seen in Great Expectations -- is not among my favorite literary devices. The romantic plot contrivances were also hard to swallow. But overall I found Davy to be a sympathetic character who redeems himself well -- unlike how I felt about Pip in Great Expectations, whom I thought was a twit pretty much to the end of the book. The most engrossing character for me was Steerforth, who incites both anger and pity, sometimes both at once.

I hated to put it down

by Woolymamath on Apr 9, 2007

David Copperfield so engaged me I hated to put it down. Many a night I stayed up yawning to read just a little more. I love reading about old-world England , a world where values are clearly defined ( very rare in contemporary literature ); where integrity and hard work are rated highly; the unselfish devotion of Peggoty toward little Em'ly; David's compassion for his child-wife; the strength and determination of his aunt Miss Trotwood. Their story is engaging and moves briskly without lagging. I laughed and cried reading this book. Dickens' characters are unforgettable; either lovable or deliciously repulsive. His choices of names for his characters are colorful and strong. DC inspired me to look at my own life a little differently. I came away from this book with some improvement in my thoughts. Not only was I entertained; I was also inspired. A wonderful gripping read with substance. I hate racing through a good book in an evening or two. I want to be able to enjoy it for a time as I was able to with this book. Very definitely a book worth reading.
