    Description

    Between his work on the 2014 Audible Audiobook of the Year, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel, and his performance of Classic Love Poems, narrator Richard Armitage (The Hobbit, Hannibal) has quickly become a listener favorite. Now, in this defining performance of Charles Dickens' classic David Copperfield, Armitage lends his unique voice and interpretation, truly inhabiting each character and bringing real energy to the life of one of Dickens' most famous characters.

    This epic, exuberant novel is one of the greatest coming-of-age stories in literature, chronicling David Copperfield's extraordinary journey through life as he encounters villains, saviors, eccentrics, and grotesques - including the wicked Mr. Murdstone, stouthearted Peggotty, formidable Betsey Trotwood, impecunious Micawber, and the odious Uriah Heep. Dickens' great novel (based, in part, on his own boyhood and which he described as a "favorite child") is a work filled with life, both comic and tragic.

    Listen to Richard Armitage bring Dickens' words to life, and you'll understand why Virginia Woolf called David Copperfield "the most perfect of all the Dickens novels".

    Surprisingly Superior

    I was hesitant at first when I got this book, I do enjoy classic literature but Dickens is not one I typically like. the book is like many of his others, simply dipicting the life of a individual. Yet the characters are lovable and realistic, the life lessons are multiple and Richard Armitage does a superb job of bringing the story to fruition

    A PERFECT narration of an English classic!

    I find Charles Dickens' novels difficult to read because of his sentence structure and length. Reading David Copperfield was especially difficult for me due to the length of the novel, but the story is so worthwhile that the effort is rewarded.

    I listened to this Audible version one or two chapters a day over several weeks. Richard Armitage does an incredible job of narration especially with the character's voices. Listening to him is a joy. There are many excellent narrators of audio books, but the consistent quality of Armitage's work of over 36 hours of David Copperfield ranks this as the best narrated audio book I have ever listened to. It is a classic narration of an English classic novel.

    This narration of David Copperfield by Richard Armitage has my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION. Even if you have previously read the book and maybe especially if you have not read David Copperfield, you will enjoy this audio book.

    The Armitage Voice"

    Where does David Copperfield rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    So far, this is the one I love the most....David Copperfield is one of my favorites anyway, but to have that voice, the voice of Richard Armitage "read it to me", just awesome

    Have you listened to any of Richard Armitage’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, they way he reads, the tones, the inflections, the voice changes is just brilliant..

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I almost did, but I needed to sleep...

    Any additional comments?

    Just keep them coming with Richard Armitage at the helm.......Thank you to Audible and to "The Armitage" for bringing David Copperfield to life.....

    An astonishing, rapturous narration of a beautiful story

    I am so amazed by the narration of this book, which was new to me. It is so compassionate, so vivid, so human. Not just engaged but embodying these characters so cleverly drawn by Dickens, bringing them to three-dimensional life. He makes the florid prose easy(ish) to follow. I adore Dickens’ subtle observations of human nature. I was profoundly touched by this book. My favorite character was Mr. Micawber— what a wonderful journey we have with him; such an unexpected one... and so, so funny. In closing, I think Mr. Armitage may deliver the finest narration for an audiobook that I have had the pleasure of hearing.

    Classic Story with Superb Performance.

    What made the experience of listening to David Copperfield [Audible Studios] the most enjoyable?

    Richard Armitage's voice was incredible. He brought this book to a new life. His beautiful inflections and characterizations were spot on.

    Any additional comments?

    You've either read David Copperfield and want to know if it is worth the listen, or you are new to this work. Be not hesitant, this is one of the best performances on Audible. And David Copperfield is just classic. Dicken's has a definite style to him. He's studied for a reason, and that reason is damned good writing. Spend the credit... you'll be cultured as well as entertained.

    Procrastination is the thief of time...

    “I know enough of the world now to have almost lost the capacity of being much surprised by anything” ― Charles Dickens, David Copperfield 'David Copperfield' contains more saints per capita than any beatified book by Butler. Dickens is amazing in his ability to be both grand and personal. David Copperfield is sprawling, with dozens of threads that weave around David Copperfield's youth and adulthood. IT is amazing not only how he can transform a character through time, but also show that our perceptions of those same characters are drawn often from imperfect information and overly simple assumptions. Yes, there are parts of 'David Copperfield' that float between the melodramatic and the grotesque, but one doesn't read Dickens for the unmoving, normal or embellished. There are a handful of novels that I would consider to be the literary equivalent of scripture: 'Les Miserables', 'the Idiot', 'Anna Karenina', and for sure 'David Copperfield'. There are several moments in 'David Copperfield' when, as a reader, you recognize you will never be half the writer Dickens was (on deadline). He might just be second to Shakespeare in my book, or at least be among a small cadre of writers that belong on the silver pedestal below the Bard. This isn't as technically perfect as 'Great Expectations', but it is top tier Dickens for sure. A massive novel that floats with the weight of a beach read half its size. If you are going to read a Dickens, this might not be your first stop, but it shouldn't be far from your second.

    Absolutely spot-on perfect!!!!

    I have read David Copperfield at least three times over the years, along with most of Dickens, and my love of Dickens led me to Wilkie Collins...what I'm trying to say is that I'm a huge enthusiast of the author as well as this story and allow me to assure you; THIS is an absolutely AMAZING narrator who brings each individual character to life, whether it's a middle aged aunt with a starchy Scottish brogue, a creepy villian, be he ever so 'umble, a sweet young lady, or a sensitive man recalling his childhood. This production is transporting.

    Voice perfect

    Richard Armitage has been my favorite reader to date. I was enthralled by his narration of David Copperfield. His voice was perfect for this Charles Dickens' masterpiece. I tried reading the book years ago, but was glad that I dropped out of reading it myself since Richard Armitage so enriched the experience for me when I finally found this. I keep hoping I'll find another reader as perfectly suited to the material as was the case with this match made in heaven.

    What a classic

    I was concerned that David Copperfield was Dicken's favorite novel. Victorian sentimentality can be over the top, but Richard Armitage's characterization is consistent and nuanced. I was transported to the world created and the narrative evoked empathy and sympathy without being maudlin.

    Be Still My Heart

    OK. I have never read this before, and listening to Richard Armitage's swoon-worthy voice narrate it to me upped the story factor. David Copperfield goes through life tragedy after life tragedy with some happiness thrown in between. The real award goes to how Dickens builds this man's life in front of us and ties it up so well in the end. I couldn't have asked for a more heart stopping or satisfying ending.

    Meisterwerk

    Zum Ausgleich - weil ich eben so eine vernichtende Rezension geschrieben habe - hier also eine ausschließlich positive: ich liebe "David Copperfield", seitdem ich ihn als Kind zum ersten Mal gelesen habe. Ich kenne ihn als Buch, in mehreren Verfilmungen und nun erlebe ich ihn seit ein paar Tagen in Hörbuchform - und "erleben" ist hier Programm, weil Richard Armitage einfach ein Vorlesergenie ist.
    Ich werde nie verstehen, wie es jemand mit einer eigentlich so eindrücklich tiefen, bemerkenswerten Stimme schafft, "sich" vergessen zu machen, so dass man im Hörprozess wirklich (sogar) die weiblichen Personen hört bzw. den Eindruck gewinnt, es sprächen viele verschiedene Menschen und das ohne auch nur einmal über die Stränge zu schlagen. Das Genie steckt hier in der Zurückhaltung, im Achten aufs Detail. Sicher, das sollte ein Sprecher per se können und ja, der Mr. Armitage kann es.
    Der Roman gehört dabei sicherlich nicht zu den einfachsten Texten, aber er kommt so erzählerisch, schwelgerisch und vielschichtig daher, dass es einfach ein Genuss ist zuzuhören. Glücklicherweise hat Charles Dickens keine Novellen geschrieben, so dass unsereins lange etwas von diesen Meisterwerken hat.

    Ein Muss für jeden Hörbuch-Fan!

    Welchen drei Worte würden für Sie David Copperfield [Audible] treffend charakterisieren?

    unterhaltsam, lebendig und inspirierend

    Wie hat Ihnen Richard Armitage als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

    Richard Armitage schafft es, den vielen Figuren des Werks Leben einzuhauchen. Mit Hilfe zahlreicher britischer Dialekte und der Fähigkeit seine Stimme zu verstellen, gibt er jeder Figur eine eigene Note und macht sie dadurch unverwechselbar. Die Stimmen der Hauptfiguren haben einen sehr hohen Wiedererkennungswert, was dabei hilft dem Geschichtsverlauf zu folgen, egal über wie viel Zeilen sich die einzelnen Dickens' Sätze erstrecken.

    Aus diesem Grund ist dieses lange Hörbuch zu keiner Zeit langweilig sondern sehr unterhaltsam.

    Richard Armitage ist einer der besten Hörbuch-Autoren, mit denen ich bisher das Vergnügen hatte. Alle seine Hörbücher sind ein Genuss!

    Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

    Es gab für mich viele emotional bewegende Momente. Jeder einzelne Moment, in dem David traurig und verzweifelt ist, berührt mich sehr, weil Richard Armitage es schafft David's Gefühlen beim Erzählen Ausdruck zu verleihen. Es gibt aber auch lustige Momente, in denen man Richard/David förmlich lächeln hören kann und in denen man dann nicht anders kann als sich mit zu amüsieren.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Es handelt sich hier um ein sehr gefühlvoll gesprochenes Hörbuch, was einen mit auf die Reise durch David Copperfields Leben nimmt. Man lacht mit ihm, man weint mit ihm und man wünscht ihm alles Glück der Welt. Das liegt sowohl an der Geschichte selbst als auch an der lebendigen Erzählweise Richard Armitages.

    Richard Armitage rocks!

    Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von David Copperfield für besser als das Buch?

    Ja, die Hörbuch-Ausgabe ist trotz der Länge ein absoluter Gewinn!

    Welches andere Buch würden Sie mit David Copperfield vergleichen? Warum?

    Andere Dickens-Romane wie z.B. Oliver Twist, Great expectations, aber auch viktorianische Literatur wie North & South von Elizabeth Gaskell.

    Wie hat Ihnen Richard Armitage als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

    Richard Armitage versteht es wunderbar, die verschiedenen Charaktere mit unterschiedlichen britischen Dialekten zu sprechen und so immer wieder Akzente zu setzen. Besonders gefallen haben mir Aunt Betsy, Mr Micawber und Miss Mowcher. Köstlich! Armitages Erzählstil ist kurzweilig, frisch und absolut auf den Punkt! Wie immer!

    Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

    Zwischendurch musste ich immer wieder mal lachen, denn Richard Armitage versteht es hervorragend, die humorvollen Situationen im Buch besonders herauszuarbeiten.
