David Copperfield is my first love. People fall in love seeing the beauty, grace and perhaps the qualification of a person. I, however, fell in love with young David, after reading his life-long struggle, and the manner & dignity with which he faced the ups and downs of his life. Dickens, with his amazing power of narration, takes us on David's journey with him and not for once did I think of getting off the ride. The struggles and blows David undergoes have made me cry and just as well, his happy moments have made me gleeful. Never did I feel, that I was actually reading a story, and not visualizing the life of the protagonist. To me, David Copperfield has crossed the limits of written literature and has created a screen where a posthumous boy's life has been portrayed. His emotional attachment with his mother, his nurse Peggotty and later his wife displays David's soft nature, while his resolute nature is equally expressed as he hunts for his once-best friend in his mission to save an innocent victim from the former's clutches. David is a perfect image of a boy's and then a man's personality, and hence it is quite easy to fall for him! What are you waiting for? Go get it &read it immediately!--Submitted by Promione
