Amazing reading!

Qu'est-ce qui a rendu l'écoute de David Copperfield agréable ?

A fantastic story really brought to life by Martin Jarvis' excellent reading. Every character was different and brilliant - especially the awful Uriah Heep!

Perfect narrator for one of the best classics.

Reading David Copperfield is always a great pleasure, but listening to a superb reader makes is doubly so. I have listened to four different people narrate this classic, and Jarvis stands tall as the best. He simply offers an outstanding performance. There's no need to give a synopsis of David Copperield, I just want to encourage Audible members to choose this version since the reader makes it more enjoyable than other performers who have narrted the classic tale. Download it and travel back in time to the Dickensian world.

David Copperfield - Perfection

This audio book is, in my opinion, quite simply the most rewarding listening possible.

David Copperfield is rightly considered a classic. It is a wonderful book that sweeps through a life and has such characters in it as would pitch the listener between pity, anger and farce. I lost count of the times I laughed out loud and on several occasions I was moved almost to tears.

This reading enhances the reputation of classic in almost every way. Superb narration, diction and tempo, consistent and effortless characterizations and a pretty good recording make this audio book the highlight of my Audible association.

Can't recommend this any higher

Enchanting.

This was the first audiobook I have ever listened to, and I am so glad I chose this one for my initiation. Martin Jarvis is simply amazing; a truly talented man. I never tired of listening to his voice-- his accent is perfect. He performs all of the voices of the characters (which are numerous) with such skill, it almost felt like I was listening to a whole cast rather than this one amazing actor. The book itself is wonderful. I was never fond of reading Dickens, but hearing it "performed" in this manner has made me a Dickens fan. You won't regret listening to this one.

Absorbing story expertly narrated

I was a real pleasure listening to this book. Martin Jarvis is a master. He is perhaps my favorite narrator of all. His voice is lovely, and he has created a dozen or so unique character voices that he somehow manages to keep straight throughout. Moreover, he moves effortlessly between character and narrator, giving us a seamless listen.

The story itself is so rich in description and detail that I am transported body and soul to Victorian England. The dialog is beautifully written and makes me yearn for the gentility of centuries past.

Highly recommended.

This reading by Mr. Martin Jarvis is astounding!

Never have I enjoyed an audiobook more! Mr. Jarvis' character voices and reading skill, rendered with gusto and great depth, turn what could have been a mere auditory experience into a rich encounter with high drama, humour, pathos and pure fun. In short - BRAVO!

Brilliant Narrator

Martin Jarvis' narration of this book was nothing short of brilliant. He really made the characters come to life and coloured in the story. It was like seeing a black and white film in colour for the first time. I'm working my way through all of Dickens books and am really glad I got this one. I'll certainly be looking forward to hearing more of Jarvis.

This book was not quite as action packed and fraught with evil deeds as some of Dickens' other works, but it's a good tale all the same. It's fascinating to watch as the characters develop and change over time. It's fun, positive and full of characters that seem like old friends by the time you finish. Loved it.

I really enjoyed it!!

This is totally enjoyable even though I have read the book before, listening to the audio was great.
If audible books are like Daved Copperfield (Unabridged), then I will continue to purchase them.

DICKENS BEST

I've read all of Dickens novels, Many more than once, and the best as far as I'm concerned is David Copperfield. So many great characters and so many great twists and turns. It is quite hard to pick a favorite because almost all of his books are so remarkable, and in audible with a top notch narrator they are a uniquely enriching experience!!

There are so many unique characters in Dickens novels and that presents an opportunity to separate those truly gifted narrators from the pack. They produce something so special that youll have no problem calling them great artists. Jarvis does a great job on this one. I highly recommend it. Dickens and audible are made for each other!

My favorite Dickens narration was Little Dorrit narrated by Anton Lesser. I envy you if your just starting to listen to Dickens on audible, you have many treasures in store!!

Absolutely magical

I imagine that if Dickens were alive he would be just as enthralled by Martin Jarvis as the Audible audience will be. Jarvis makes every character come alive and brings out Dickens's genius as a storyteller, a judge of character, and a write of great flexibility and skill. Sheer pleasure from beginning to end.

His Favourite Child

"'Good day, sir,' said my aunt, 'and good-bye! Good day to you, too, ma'am,' said my aunt, turning suddenly upon his sister. 'Let me see you ride a donkey over my green again, and as sure as you have a head upon your shoulders, I'll knock your bonnet off, and tread upon it!'

It would require a painter, and no common painter too, to depict my aunt's face as she delivered herself of this very unexpected sentiment, and Miss Murdstone's face as she heard it. But the manner of the speech, no less than the matter, was so fiery, that Miss Murdstone, without a word in answer, discreetly put her arm through her brother's, and walked haughtily out of the cottage; my aunt remaining in the window looking after them; prepared, I have no doubt, in case of the donkey's reappearance, to carry her threat into instant execution."

The above is taken from chapter 14: MY AUNT MAKES UP HER MIND ABOUT ME, which I found so funny that I listened to it over and over again so I could take in every nuance of this speech delivered by one of the novel's most colourful characters, albeit she was one of several.


This is Dicken's epic and semi-autobigraphical story about young David Copperfield, born six months after his father's passing, who suffered a miserable childhood during which he was abused by his mother's tyrannical new husband Edward Murdstone and his sister, who separated him from his beloved mother and sent him to a school where punishments were handed out violently and frequently. When David's still young mother passes away, Edward Murdstone, far from showing any compassion, puts nine-year-old David to work at a menial job in a factory in London, where he is left to fend for himself on a meagre salary. David eventually decides to escape and makes a long difficult journey to seek out his great aunt Betsey Trottwood. This wonderful character takes David under her wing and gives him a loving home and an education until he is ready to pursue his studies toward a respectable career. As a young man, David falls in love repeatedly and eventually becomes obsessed with Dora Spenlow, a young lady he is determined to marry one day. The novel takes us through many twists and turns and introduces a great number of fascinating characters, some most likeable, some delightfully wicked, with many plot lines which are all resolved toward the end of the novel, when David, now a well-known writer, has gained in maturity and found his heart's desire.

We all know that Dickens was verbose and he did not disappoint in that respect with this novel, which he considered to be his favourite child. I too found much to like with this story and was delighted with the overall light tone and David's good nature even as he went through incredible difficulties.

I strongly recommend this version wonderfully performed by Martin Jarvis.
