#14 – David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

I’m really indebted to Chris Chaney for suggesting I read David Copperfield. Life lesson: English professors are wonderful people and are likely to be delighted to talk about books with you even if you are not or never have been  their student.

I had a little bit of a phobia of Dickens. So many words. But eventually I just dived in and it was worth it.

Note: This novel doesn’t really have a plot.

It is, however, a bildungsroman, which means that plot is not all that important. And it’s always handy to know German literary terms to throw around at parties, so, there you go.
