Publisher Comments:

When David Copperfield escapes from the cruelty of his childhood home, he embarks on a journey to adulthood which will lead him through comedy and tragedy, love and heartbreak, and friendship and betrayal. Over the course of his adventures, David meets an array of eccentric characters and learns hard lessons about the world before he finally discovers true happiness. This edition follows the text of the first book publication in 1850, and features the original illustrations by Phiz.

Any summary of this novel will be lacking because much of the value of it is in the well-written and diverse characters. Each of the characters has something to add to the story which is why David, in starting the book, uses the words that he does -- that he may or may not be the hero of his own story. This book is often overlooked because of the simple title and the prejudice against Dickens but it is really a fantastic story.
