The orphaned David Copperfield grows up amongst a variety of both comical and frightening characters. He faces trial after trial, but eventually grows up. This is a classic coming of age novel that demonstrates how David learns to deal with loss, responsibility, and love.
This book is a nice, cheerful story. It is not dramatized or very mysterious, and yet the simplicity of the story allows for many serious themes to be addressed. It is a refreshing reminder of what is most important in life (friendships, love, and courage).
While I absolutely love this book, I do admit that some people might find it boring. If you like Charles Dickens, then this is a must read since this is considered his most autobiographical work.
