"I am born" begins David Copperfield, famously. However, this is a birth which is blighted by its timing: 12 o'clock on a Friday night at precisely the time the clock began to strike. Such untimeliness meant that David was destined to be unlucky in life and would be priviliged to see ghosts and spirits. A dubious privilege. In David Copperfield, ghosts and other supernatural phenomena are invoked in relation to a range of male characters' and situations. David is haunted by memories of people and of places he has been before. It is in the character of Uriah Heep,however, and in David's perception of and relationship with him, that the story is at its most supernatural.

**New Millennium Audio is proud to present the most central collection of Charles Dickens on audio ever done. And, take a look at our Mark Twain series too.**From AudioFile:
[Editor's Note--The following is a combined review with BLEAK HOUSE, GHOST STORIES, GREAT EXPECTATIONS, HARD TIMES, MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT, THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, OLIVER TWIST, OUR MUTUAL FRIEND, THE PICKWICK PAPERS, and A TALE OF TWO CITIES.]--New Millennium presents the distinguished Academy Award winner Paul Scofield interpreting abridgments of the novels and stories of Charles Dickens. These are excellent readings, sonorous and compelling. However, they lack the verve and character of the old Victorian qualities that have been so wonderfully captured on cassette by Martin Jarvis and Miriam Margolyes, among others. And while few authors benefit more from pruning than the paid-by-the-word Dickens, some of these cuttings are far too drastic. In addition, hurried post-production is evident in numerous audible edits, frequent mouth noises, and occasional overlapping of announcer and narrator.
