Waterstones Says

Dickens' spellbinding novel of love, obsession and the true meaning of inheritance, Great Expectations sees Pip make his way in the world haunted always by the figure of his unrequited adoration Estella and her embittered guardian Miss Havisham.

Considered by many to be Dickens' finest novel, Great Expectations traces the growth of the book's narrator, Philip Pirrip (Pip), from a boy of shallow dreams to a man with depth of character. From its famous dramatic opening on the bleak Kentish marshes, the story abounds with some of Dickens' most memorable characters.

Among them are the kindly blacksmith Joe Gargery, the mysterious convict Abel Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Haversham and her beautiful ward Estella, Pip's good-hearted room-mate Herbert Pocket and the pompous Pumblechook.

As Pip unravels the truth behind his own 'great expectations' in his quest to become a gentleman, the mysteries of the past and the convolutions of fate through a series of thrilling adventures serve to steer him towards maturity and his most important discovery of all - the truth about himself.

“Great Expectations”

An awesome read. At once humorous, tearful, gut-wrenching and terrifying. A faultless plot-line glittering with some of literature's most famous characters. If you've not yet sat down and read this novel in... More

It was a good start. I loved the characters, they felt real and rounded but also strange and original. I loved the feel of Dickens' London which is such a different London and the cosy atmosphere he creates,... More
