David Copperfield (version 2)

Gelesen von Tadhg

(4,856 Sterne; 469 Bewertungen)

The story is told almost entirely from the point of view of the first person narrator, David Copperfield himself, and was the first Dickens novel to be written as such a narration. The story deals with the life of David Copperfield from childhood to maturity. David's father had died six months before he was born, and seven years later, his mother remarries but David and his step-father don’t get on and he is sent to boarding school. As David settles into life we are taken along with him and meet a dazzling array of characters, some of whom we will never forget and some of whom we won't want to remember!

Amazingly brilliant tale, amazingly brilliant (as ever) narration by Tadhg. Tadhg brings each character to life using, it seems, his sensitivity in creating and developing natural voices which reflect each individual's essential essence; he also switches seamlessly between character voices, thus the tale flows uninterrupted. Tadhg was simply born to narrate. Can't wait for more titles read by Tadhg. This text with Tadhg's narration is highly recommended. 👍

brilliant work of literature read brilliantly by T Hynes.

(5 Sterne)

It would be presumptuous of me to review the literary text of Dickens. All I can say is: this book takes my breath away. The poignancy of story, humanness of character, vibrancy of dialogue - achieve great heights as read by the talented T Hynes. His voice bellows, whinges, whispers, whimpers to a range of cadences, tenors, and accents. How can one person so expertly portray so many? Mr. Hynes, you are a star. Actually, you are 5 stars!! Dickens is a master of dialogue that comes to life under your equally masterful direction and execution. Thank you for such a memorable "read"!

Another great read

(5 Sterne)

Tadgh does a fantastic job as always. He makes David Copperfield come alive with more than just clear careful enunciation, the minimum for a good narrator. He gives life to the characters with their different personalities and voices. David Copperfield is a wonderful choice for anyone who is unfamiliar with Dickens, or just read Great Expectations in school. David is a very sympathetic character and following his life gives us great insight into the England at the time as well as great insight into Charles Dickens life in particular. Dickens said that David Copperfield was his favorite creation and that he was sad to finish with David. You can tell why when you see/hear how much of his own life experiences are in the book.

Absolutely Perfect

(5 Sterne)

The book is truly a timeless classic that tells a wonderful story. Yes, it's long and has many characters to remember with names so much alike that it's easy to forget who's who. However, it's well worth it. The narrator is the part that is perfect. He gives each and every characters its own voice, maintains it consistently through the whole book, and uses the quality of each voice to capture the essence of that person. The voices range from neutral to kindly and from pompous to downright creepy. I strongly recommend this recording.

Always Dickens

(5 Sterne)

Of course, anything by Dickens is wonderful, however, David Copperfield is somehow made better by Tadhg. His voice is melodious, easy to listen to and you're able to be in the story instead of in your car due to his easy cadence and slight character voice changes. I've saved all of Tadhg's readings now. Oh, and the book's quite good, as well.

Simply wonderful!

(5 Sterne)

I have always loved librivox and here is an excellent example of why. A wonderful, and well loved, classic, read by a wonderful, talented and entertaining narrator. Add to that, the marvelous selection of timeless classics offered, the several talented narrators, and the fact that this is all provided free of charge and how could you not love it?

(5 Sterne)

This is an absolutely fantastic audio book where the reader has clearly put in a lot of effort to reflect the differing characters, the emotions, the scenes etc. I have never put in a review on libra vox but felt I needed to in order to complement and highlight the fantastic reading by his person (tygh hines). The story itself is great, although it was pretty long and in the middle of the book it seemed to drag on somewhat. However by the end I was left wanting more, both from the book and the reader, a good sign! I highly recommend to all.

great book and reader

(5 Sterne)

When I first read this book years ago I somehow didn't get it like I did this time. The reading really changed the book and allowed me to take it in more deeply. It was inspiring to hear a reading where each word was brought to life. For me, this is one of the best readings I've listened to and I've listened to many. This book is a great one to do this with. It has varied characters and is a playground of sorts for a reader with these talents. Thank you warmly for this.
