'His novels will endure as long as the language itself' Peter Ackroyd

Dickens's haunting late novel depicts the education and development of a young man, Pip, as his life is changed by a series of events - a terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor - and he discovers the true nature of his 'great expectations'. This definitive edition includes appendices on Dickens's original ending, giving an illuminating glimpse into a great novelist at work.

With an Introduction by DAVID TROTTER
Edited and with notes by CHARLOTTE MITCHELL

“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

“A Great Bride Cake Of A Book”

The first Dickens story I was ever exposed to was this one (through the medium of David Lean's magnificent film). I was scared, moved, entertained and seven years old. The impression it made on me was so great... More

“My first Dickens”

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
