Shelves: literature, spring

the Cottage of content was better than the Palace of cold splendour

Charles Dickens always represents warmth to me. There are other great writers, but some are just...cold. This second half of the Copperfield saga is full of such warmth, where even the coldest characters still have a teakettle warming somewhere in their hearts. I even felt sorry for Uriah Heep. Well, almost.

The narrative kept me thoroughly hooked. The words, the descriptions, everything. Every time I thought I would finally get s

David Copperfield oder besser „The Personal History Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery „ erzählt die Lebensgeschichte des David bzw. Trottwood Copperfield. Schon als David geboren wird, ist er Halbwaise, denn er ist ein nachgeborenes Kind und kommt erst nach dem Tode seines Vaters zur Welt. Davids Mutter ist von sanftem Gemüt und gibt sich redlich Mühe alleine klar zu kommen, wäre aber ohne Peggotty, Davids Amme, hilflos und verloren. Daher ...more

All ends well for Copperfield- after a bit of a struggle and a few false starts, such is the goal of Victoria literature. Dickens does not disappoint in this model where those who refuse or are incapable of development or to turn their hands and position to public good are killed off. The emerging middle class are given their equal share of villains although theses two aspirational villains avoid true justice by mocking the penal system as 'true penenents'. Lastly that if a character ...more

Well that was a struggle to get through, could I have picked a more boring book to finish off this year's reading challenge?! For a 500 page book a lot of nothing seems to happen. If this is described as one of Dickens most beloved books it doesn't give me much hope in enjoying any of his others, but i have at least 5 others on my shelves so persevere I will.

I was a bit disappointed that the dreadful Murdstones weren't given a suitable ending but merely mentioned in passing and just shrugged of

I just re-read this book and enjoyed it very much. I read it in High School and enjoyed it then also. Not everyone enjoys Charles Dickens books but I do. My literature teacher in school was a Dickens fan and that is where I learned to appreciate Dickens. It is a thick book but re-reading it brought back a lot of memories. There are so many colorful characters. In my opinion this is the best book Dickens wrote. I have all of his books but this one is by far my favorite.

Vihdoin ja viimein lopussa. Hyvä kirja, mutta Dickensin tyyli kirjoittaa on paatoksellinen ja jaaritteleva ja lyhyestä asiasta kertomiseen saattaa kulua monta kymmentä sivua. Kirja oli kuitenkin hyvä, jaarittelusta huolimatta.
