Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review According to the general voice of the critics, Copperfield is one of the best of Mr. Dickens's stories, written with decidedly more care and effort than its immediate processors, as if the author had determined to show the captious public that his genius was fine and fresh as ever. -- David Masson, literary critic and historian What a pleasure to have the opportunity of praising a work so sound, a work so rich in merit, as David Copperfield!...Of the contemporary rubbish which is shot so plentifully all around us, we can, indeed, hardly read too little. But to contemporary work so good as David Copperfield, we are in danger of perhaps not paying respect enough. -- Matthew Arnold, British poet and critic The most perfect of all the Dickens novels. -- Virginia Woolf David Copperfield is Dickens's Hamlet...I can't remember being so moved by one of his novels...What puts David Copperfield right up there with Bleak House and Great Expectations, however, is its sweet nature, and its surprising modernity...Completing David Copperfield has left me feeling bereft. -- Nick Hornby, New York Times bestselling author

Author's Bio

Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors' prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature's most iconic characters. Ralph Cosham (1936-2014), a.k.a. Geoffrey Howard, was a British journalist who changed careers to become a narrator and screen and stage actor. He performed in more than one hundred professional theatrical roles, and several of his narrations were named Audio Best of the Year by Publishers Weekly. He won seven AudioFile Earphones Awards, and in 2013 he won the coveted Audie Award for Best Mystery Narration for his reading of Louise Penny's The Beautiful Mystery.
