Martin Jarvis's presentation of David Copperfield is magnificent. With his soothing British accent, Jarvis brings Dickens's immortal cast to life and creates voices that perfectly define each character and remain consistent throughout the long production. Particularly noteworthy among the stellar cast are the indomitable Mr. and Mrs. Micawber and the unctuous Uriah Heep. As the story recounts the life of Dickens's self-proclaimed "favorite child" from birth to maturity, the listener's attention remains constant. Jarvis's interpretation takes the fear out of approaching Dickens and will surely persuade the listener to try some of his other works. This audio masterpiece is highly recommended. R.B.F.
