    ‘David Copperfield’ by Charles Dickens. The classic British novel, close to an autobiography. Complex plot and development of many and diverse, strong characters, who, although 19th Century, resemble many types today. While not as famous today as Dickens’ ‘ A Christmas Carol’, the book has been adapted to 11 films, plays and TV series, the last a 2000 film.
