When orphan Pip meets the escaped convict Magwitch in an overgrown churchyard on the Kent marshes, little does he know that the incident will change his life forever. Some years later, now apprenticed to his blacksmith brother-in-law, Pip falls in love with the beautiful Estella. Her half-crazed and bitter guardian Miss Havisham, however, exerts a malign influence over the girl and forces a wedge between the two. Pip abandons his roots and, with “great expectations” of becoming a gentleman, heads for London society. There he begins to receive riches from a mysterious benefactor. Pip’s quest to find his true identity, and his growth to maturity through misfortune and misery, form the basis of this atmospheric tale.

    " I adore Dickens. It's amazing how the reader can connect to characters written so long ago. "

    " Find out next week what the cops are really here for. Who will they arrest? Pip? Joe? Pumblechook? Did they find out about pip helping the convict, or are they just stopping over to say hi? The way the author writes it is in a way I don't think Charles even knows himself. Buy the next section in order to find out why the cops want to arrest Joe? Oops, I gave it away. Or did I? "

    " I won't lie, I have to discipline myself to read Dickens, but he came through with the ending in Great Expectations. "

    " There's a reason just about everything Dickens wrote is considered a classic. He was brilliant. I remember reading this book in high school, but a recent viewing of Masterpiece Classic inspired me to pick it up and read it again. The imperfections of the main character Pip and fellows Miss Havisham, Magwich (noble savage that he is), Jaggers and Estella have given me quite a bit to mull over. Who, really, is the villain - the convict, the jilted madwoman, the heartless Estella or is it Pip himself? "
