El gran novelista ingles Charles Dickens en pocas obras dio rienda suelta a su imaginacion creadora, sin caer en el sentimentalismo y con mucho de satira, como lo hizo en Grandes Esperanzas, su penultima novela y considerada por la critica como una de las mejores de su pluma. Como acostumbraba, la obra fue escrita para ser publicada por entregas en una revista y por eso la necesidad de conservar en cada capitulo el interes, que nunca decae. La historia del joven Pip, que se halla elevado a una condicion social superior a la que nacio y que cae en las manos de Stella, a quien le han ensenado a torturar con su belleza a los hombres, nunca pierde el atractivo argumental y tiene ademas interesantes estudios de caracteres.

    " The book is very well written. The plot twist was great. I probably wouldn't read the book again, but it was good. I enjoyed the book but not to the point to tell people to read it. It is not my type of book. I usually wouldn't read a book like this,but it was good. "

    " The thing that stands out most for me is Miss Havisham: just a chilling archetype of someone stuck in the past who will never emerge. Pip frankly did not interest me as much as the tragic old maid! "

    " In the Heritage Edition of Adventures in Reading I read a shorter version of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. When I started this book my wonderful english teacher told me that it would be the best book I have ever read, but (as I expected) it was not. It's not that I disliked the book or thought it to be boring, I just felt that it was very frustrating. Most of my frustration was with Pip the main character. He was given something so precious and valuable that he wasn't even aware of its existence until he thought he lost it. Of course I am talkikng about love (what else would a book be based on). Joe Gargery was like a father to Pip and loved him both unconditionally and sacrifically like a son. Pip discarded this love and took advantage of it even if it was without his realization. Joe, being the gracious man he is, never stopped loving him and excepted Pip's apology in the end. Overall I liked the book and thought it had a great message, but it was not my favorite and will probably never be. "

    " I will admit this is the very first tome that I finished and an excellent novel. The story begins with a young orphaned boy named Pip. He lives in poverty with his sister and her husband on an English countryside. One day while visiting the churchyard of his parent's grave, he meets up with a convict named Magwitch and the story evolves from there on. Each character stood out which kept my interest. In addtion, each character's lives are intertwined. The mysterious Miss Havisham and the supercilious Estella just to name a few of the characters that will peak your interest. There's so much tell you about the novel, but I will leave it for you to find out how and why the characters lives are connected. Please keep in mind that there are two endings to this novel. Great Expectations offers mystery, sadness, thwarted expectation, anger, surprises, love, emphathy and suspense. "

    " The sound of a gun fire arrives. Pip finds Mrs. Joe has been shot in the head. Who shot her? Why did they shoot her? Does Pip believe he knows who did it? Will Mrs. Joe be able to tell us who did it? Will she be okay? How does this affect Pip and Joe's future? If she does survive, who will take care of her? Find out in the next installment of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations. "

    " Long but worth it. Dickens was surely a man of compassion with all the qualities of his best characters or he couldn't develop them with such authenticity. Loved it. "

    " Captivating but sad. Timeless classic. Makes you reflect on your own priorities and what is truly important in life. "

    " Story is interesting though I kind of felt that it beyond being realistic sometimes. Love how Dickens portray the characters and the use of language with contemporary inclusions. After all it's a story about an Idiotic boy :D "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matt Sokol | 12/21/2013

    " This is a decent book on a micro-level, since the narrative style is pretty good and I laughed out loud a good number of times. As a full book though it's extremely dull and I found myself having to push myself through it other than a few moments where major plot points kicked in. "

    " what detestable in pig more so in boy or girl, lies come from father of lies, must be common scholar to be uncommon cannot get there by being crooked, tears rain up on blinding dust of earth, no varnish can hide the grain of the wood, Estella deceive and entrap. "

    " I listened to the audiobook. I liked Oliver Twist more, but this is clearly also a classic. Just not in the same league as the other IMHO "

    " I didn't love it. Apart from the fabled Miss Havisham, I was struggling. Then came Pip's beautiful love declaration and a packed final 100 pages that turned it all around. Now, I plan to reread. "

    " Not a fan of this Dicken's classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beekman Library | 2/4/2012

    " We loved this book! Charles Dickens' writing is not the least bit dated even though we read the book 162 years after it was published. The book was both funny and heartbreaking and Pip's growth from a self-absorbed, pompous boy to an admirable and loyal man makes for an absorbing story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 1/4/2012

    " I listened to the audible version. It was great and I wasn't expecting to hear Dicken's originally intended ending which was also included. "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
