In a gloomy, neglected house Miss Havisham sits, as she has sat year after year, in a wedding dress and veil that were once white, and are now faded and yellow with age. Her face is like a death's head; her dark eyes burn with bitterness and hate. By her side sits a proud and beautiful girl, and in front of her, trembling with fear in his thick country boots, stands young Pip. Miss Havisham stares at Pip coldly, and murmurs to the girl at her side: 'Break his heart, Estella. Break his heart!' An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Charles Dickens original by Clare West.

    " I have great respect for this book, but I myself don't enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Santanu Bhowmick | 2/11/2014

    " This is the book that I've re-read almost every couple of years, and I've enjoyed it every bit as much as the first time I read it (or even more, as I read through the parts I like most - in fact, writing this review is making me itch to read it again, right now!). I wished I had the ability to put down in words what I feel each time I leaf through this epic work - it is the lens through which I feel I can examine any feature of humanity! "

    " This was an intriguing read. I repeatedly wondered how Dickens came up with such a character as Ms. Havisham. I felt that Pip's love of Estella was absurd and governed his every waking moment. Heartbreak warped this book to the point that most women were wretched shrews and most men were oily cowards. Besides these aspects, I feel that Dickens made his point. Love is the single most dangerous catalyst in the universe. "

    " I was most impacted by the protagonist's response to a gift received from a convict, and the change that slowly occurred as he learned more of the convict's story. "
