Review:

""David Copperfield [is] the most poetic of all Dickens' novels . . . Not only was he revealing to his readers in the earlier chapters his 'hard experiences in boyhood' and his scorching first experience of passionate love, he was also sharing with them his own understanding of the roots of the art that had taken them by storm and to which they were in thrall even as they read about it." -From the Introduction by Michael Slater

Review:

"The greatest achievement of the greatest of all novelists" (Leo Tolstoy)

" David Copperfield is Dickens's Hamlet... I can't remember being so moved by one of his novels... What puts David Copperfield right up there with Bleak House and Great Expectations, however, is its sweet nature, and its surprising modernity... Completing David Copperfield has left me feeling bereft" (Nick Hornby)

"I couldn't put it down" (Barbara Taylor Bradford)

"There were never such people as the Micawbers, Peggotty and Barkis, Traddles, Betsey Trotwood and Mr. Dick, Uriah Heep and his mother. They are fantastic inventions of Dickens's exultant imagination...you can never quite forget them" (W. Somerset Maugham)

"Dickens is huge - like the sky. Pick any page of Dickens and it's immediately recognizable as him, yet he might be doing social satire, or farce, or horror, or a psychological study of a murderer - or any combination of these" (Susannah Clarke)
