Dark, but powerful! Well worth the read.
on 27 February 2017
This was a really powerful story, poor David had a really hard life for years, which only began to improve when he grew older, and then it was only through the hard lessons he had learned from hardship. He was a gentle, decent soul, who suffered much, from the re-marriage of his mother, the cruelty of his step-father, the later loss of his mother, and worse life to follow, one was frequently wishing to get into the book to help him! Life was painted dark, but that was Dickens' era, life was dark and hard. But David triumphed in the end, by being a good person.
