I really enjoyed this book. This may sound lame, but I'm always sad after reading a book like this because I feel like I just moved away from a group of friends I'll never get to see again. There are some terrific characters in this book you get to know and love. Also, Charles Dickens is an amazing writer. He makes words come to life.

This is, without a doubt, the worst book I have ever forced myself to read. Granted, I was in sixth or seventh grade at the time--and perhaps the book has some merit through the ideas of an adult. Yet, every time I think about this book, I vomit a little in my mouth. It probably doesn't deserve a re-read.

"I'm a Tartar," said the man with a wooden leg.
He's a Tartar, she's a Tartar, wouldn't you like to be a Tartar too?"
What can one say? It's a classic and who couldn't be sympathetic to David Copperfield (NOT the illusionist). Dickens is simply a fine storyteller, even if he has a funny name. (It was the best of names, it was the worst of names. I know different book).

The book I read is paperback and is only 239 pages. It is geared for younger readers but does have a lot of the story to it. I have never read one of his books before and since I bought these for my boys to read I thought I would read them, also. A Classic

This is THE Dickens to read IMO. I loved this book and I recommend it highly to any reader. A beautifully written classic with all the description and imagination you would expect from this master of literature from the olde country.

What a corker! Dickens makes amazing use of language and his social commentary is second to none. I am happy to forgive his sentimental tendencies in light of his amazing ability to combine the words of the English language. His sum is indeed greater than it's parts!

It is dreadful to consider a "review" of Dickens. It is the perfect time to read Dickens - hope in the face of despair and all those remarkably salient characters. Helps to have read Dickens in more than a perfunctory manner if you plan to see Slumdog Millionaire.

Another great novel by Dickens. The characters in this book are so funny and you see people like this everywhere.

Definitely a masterpiece, although I probably read it too early in life, and that's why at the time I thought it was a bit too long...

This is my favorite book ever! It is really long, but the story is amazing. I've never been as absorbed in a book as this one.

Dickens is my favorite author. His charater portrayals are realistic and deep. The story line is enjoyable. His stories are always rich.

One of the favorites of my young years; I still have mental pictures of the characters--who could forget the Murdstones, the Micawbers, Uriah Heep?

I read this twenty years ago or more. Now I'm reading again. I remember from before: "Barkis is willin'."

Loved this book. It took a little while for me to get into, but then I was hooked.
This is an amazing story of people and relationships.

I'm pretty sure this is my favorite Charles Dickens novel. If you're only going to read one novel by Dickens, this is the one to read. It's delightful on every page.
