Who tells the story
David was born when his father was already dead. After a few years David's mother married Mr. Murdstone. Mrs. Murdstone came to manage the house. The Murdstone's send David to school. David made there two friends, Steerforth and Traddles. When his mother past away he may come home and after a while he had to work in London. He stayed by the Micawber's. When the Micawber's moved out, David decides to run away with no money. He went to his aunt, Betsey Trotwood, and he went to school there. While he was going to school he stayed by Mr. Wickfield and his daughter Agnes. When David finished his education, he went to Yarmouth, where his friends live (Mr. Peggotty, Peggotty, Mrs. Grummidge, Emily and Ham). After that he went back to London and he met his girl of his dreams: Dora. After some hard years of no money he married her. They went in a house but Dora couldn't manage it. Dora became sick after a few years and she died. David went to Yarmouth. Steerforth and Ham died at sea. David went on travelling to forget everything. After a while he knew that he loved Agnes. He went to London again and he married Agnes.
I think this story is a great story when the book isn't simplified. The words happy and unhappy where used too much. In the beginning I didn't like the book at all because it was so sad. Later it became a happier book and I like reading it. The end was the best cause he married Agnes who can do a lot (Managing the house, cooking, etc.).
