by Charles Dickens
David Copperfield was Charles Dickens’s own favourite amongst his novels, based in part on events in his life. Sigmund Freud thought it was so good that he gave the book to his fiancée.
Dickens had a background in theatre, and while his books are long, they work well read out loud. The audiobook of David Copperfield is brilliantly narrated by actor Richard Armitage.
