Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

Bookaday Sept #9 - Your literary crush

David Copperfield - Charles Dickens, Jeremy Tambling

James Steerforth (sigh!)


Yeah I know, he's a total cad. As the saying goes, "The lady loves a rogue." I knew it was him... out on the boat. Before Mr. Dickens told us, I could feel his presence...


If you haven't read David Copperfield, you need to. It's the best book Dickens ever wrote. But go for David, not James. He's a much nicer guy.
