I have just read the book “David Copperfield” by Charles Dickens and I am so fascinated that I would like to share my opinion about it. I had to choose this book because my teacher had advised to read it for our extra lessons. I did not expect the book to be more exciting, breathtaking than books I had read before.
This book was written in 1850. It tells us about a difficult fate of the boy called David. David's father had died six months before he was born. Many of David’s memories are unhappy ones, but he makes himself tell us about them. In his early childhood, a young boy, David Copperfield lived with his mother but then his mother married a very cruel man, Mr. Murdstone and David was sent away to Salem House. His mother died just after the birth of her second child, who died along with her. David was given good reason to dislike his stepfather and had similar feelings for Mr Murdstone's sister Jane, who moved into the house soon afterward. David ran and lived with his great-aunt Miss Betsey Trotwood. The story follows David as he grows to adulthood. He met Dora Spenlow and fell in love with her. But they couldn't be happy... She died after failing to recover from a miscarriage early in their marriage. David then did some soul-searching and eventually married and found true happiness with the sensible Agnes, who had secretly always loved him. They had several children.
I like this book very much because of the beauty of style and ease of understanding. Some of David’s experiences are autobiographical – they are based on things that had happened to Dickens himself. The characters in this book are based on real personalities.
Every part of the book is something special and carries something new. The plot of the book is fascinating. It is little to say that the book is interesting I advise everybody to read it.
