When David Copperfield escapes from the cruelty of his childhood home, he embarks on a journey to adulthood which will lead him through comedy and tragedy, love and heartbreak, and friendship and betrayal. Over the course of his adventures, David meets an array of eccentric characters and learns hard lessons about the world before he finally discovers true happiness. This edition follows the text of the first book publication in 1850, and features the original illustrations by Phiz.

This book is abridged, but NOTHING in the description makes this clear. Don't order.
Be clear in the description please.
According to Amazon customer service staff, this edition is a copy of an ABRIDGED hardcopy edition. It should state so clearly in the title so as not to MISLEAD the purchasers.
This review refers to the Penguin Classics edition of David Copperfield that is offered for the Kindle.
Most (or probably all) of Dickens works are now available very readily and cheaply for the Kindle, having become Public Domain and therefore available without restriction. However, the problem with most of these free or inexpensive versions is that they are often poorly formatted for the Kindle, sometimes include typos or other editing errors, and they generally do not include any of the supplemental material that would be included in one of the nicely produced paperback or hardback editions of the work. That is why I personally prefer to purchase something like this Penguin edition, because it does include those other features and it is professionally done for the Kindle. And most of the time you can get the Penguin (or other comparable, such as Oxford) versions very cheaply anyway (I paid 99 cents for this Penguin edition, for example).
