Review of "David Copperfield - Charles Dickens"
This novel was Dickens' own favourite. It includes a mixture of delightful and less charming characters who in true dickensian style both fascinate and enthral.Plots and sub plots keep the reader constantly interested and the contrasting pictures of hardship and affluence bring to life the realities of victorian England.
By modern day standards there is a lot of desciptive prose but it is often tempting (and possible) to read through these passages quickly as the storyline is so compelling.This is without doubt Dickens at his best and would be a good "first read" of the great man as well as being a must for those already aquainted.
For literay interest, the method of character portrayal achieved in this book is fascinating and hard to define. As always the main character of the novel is the less colourful of all those around him.In conclusion if one is ever going to read Dickens, David Copperfied is a must.
