DAVID COPPERFIELD Amazon Classics Edition

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Derek Perkins

Classics • 35.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1849

Narrator Derek Perkins keeps listeners enthralled throughout the 35-plus hours of DAVID COPPERFIELD's mysteries, emotional upheavals, and delightful resolutions while simultaneously conjuring visual images of Dickens's memorable characters. Perkins wonderfully delivers the long, convoluted monologues of the writhing, oily Uriah Heep (you'll want a shower after hearing his 'umble whining); the malapropisms of the verbose, utterly charming scoundrel, Macawber; the pathetic plea of Mrs. Gummidge, and the pure hatred Miss Dartle heaps upon the hapless Emily in this classic rags-to-riches story. In the author's preface to this edition, which also includes editorial revisions, Dickens allows that this book was his favorite "child"--the one that most closely parallels his own childhood. Perkins's performance makes listening a sure bet for maximum enjoyment. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2021]
