" Written in chunks of interestingness, the plot spans 20 something odd years of "Mr. Pip"'s life, from boyhood to career. It lies out the follies and favours of having "expectations"(future money) without full disclosure and planning. There are loves, loves lost, fights, bumblers, good hearted souls, and pirates...or not pirates. In general, a solid tale about life and appreciating the people around you. "
