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.

One of Charles Dickens's most renowned and enjoyable novels, Great Expectations tells the story of Pip, an orphan boy who wishes to transcend his humble origins and is unexpectedly given the opportunity to live a life of wealth and respectability. Now a major BBC drama.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is illustrated by various artists and features an afterword by David Pinching.

Over the course of the tale, Pip encounters such famous characters as Miss Havisham, Herbert Pocket and Joe Gargery, and comes to realise that his money is tainted and the girl he loves will not return his affections. Happiness must be found in the things he gave up in pursuit of a more sophisticated life.

“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
