David Copperfield:

I am currently reading David Copperfield. I really enjoyed reading Oliver Twist, and read that Dickens considered Copperfield his best work. So far it is wonderful. I am having a hard time putting it down.

It continues to go through the typical Dickens style, of poverty and innocence being triumphant. The boy in this novel seems much more succeptible and weak than Oliver did. I can't help but root for him.

David Copperfield:

David is slowly growing and maturing. His relationships with his 'family' has solidified, but he continues to be naive in interactions with friends.

I loved it! I really enjoy Dickens style, especially how much of the character's life we get to be a part of. cheers
