    Read as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBC s Big Read Poll of 2003.Charles Dickens can do no wrong, except perhaps keep around 100 pages of rather irrelevant tangents in this book.It was such a powerhouse of characterisation and world building that I barely know where to begin All of the characters were utterly divine, even the detestable Uriah Heep

    This narrative is my written memory , declares David Copperfield in the last section of this elephantine novel, a sentence that strongly implies an autobiographical imprint of the author in the making of his famous middle class hero But is that aspect what I most value of this work Far from it.This thick volume is quite an ambitious journey partly a comic story, which often verges on

    Bravo, Dickens I have to say that, copying Thackaray for the millionth time, probably What a difference to read the original, compared to the watered down versions I was familiar with from my childhood It took me quite a lot of time to get into the rich flow of words, the beautiful allusions, and the dry humour, but then I was hooked My family will always remember the Christmas vacation when I was in a rage against Uriah Heep,
