Review:

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

"Dickens did what very few writers have managed to not only describe a city, but to define it... For all his sentimentality, [Dickens] was an extraordinary person, inseparable inthe imagination from London, just as London is inseparable from Dickens" (Time Out)

"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 came to Dickens relatively late in life, but in a way, I think that's the best time. When you're a child, all you see is the plum-pudding characterization and twisting-and-turning storylines, and though that is part of the juicy pleasure of Dickens, you need to be an adult to get the heartbreaking measure of his genius. And nothing shows that more, for me, than David Copperfield. It's the fullest, most breathtakingly truthful story of life - not for nothing was it Freud's favorite novel" (Nigella Lawson)
