One of the most enduring classics of English literature, David Copperfield traces the journey of a boy from a wretched childhood at the hands of his brutal stepfather through to a successful adulthood as a famous author.

Why you should read it

A story of tyranny and treachery, love and rejection, degradation and success, life and death - this book is at times funny, tragic, enchanting, whimsical, distressing and uplifting: it is always engaging. More than anything else he has penned, this semi-autobiographical novel will bring you close to the life and times of Dickens himself.
