In this energetic full-cast audio adaptation of the loosely autobiographical 1849 Dickens classic, the novel's sharp wit and the hero's romantic adventurism are happily brought to the fore. As Ncuti Gatwa (star of "Doctor Who") leads an outstanding international cast, listeners follow young David Copperfield, a brokenhearted orphan, to boarding school and then to an apprenticeship as a budding law clerk. Performance highlights include Rhiannon Clements's portrayal of the sassy, scene-stealing first bride, Dora. Izuka Hoyle gives a gentle depiction of the ever-faithful Agnes. Theo James is the sweet-talking, manipulative James Steerforth. And Scotsman Jack Lowden pulls out all the stops as the unctuous Uriah Heep. Featuring film-style sound effects and a musical score--this audiobook is a fine way to spend time with one of the world's all-time master storytellers.
