Description

Charles Dickens' classic tells the coming-of-age story of Pip, the orphan who rose from miserable destitution to great wealth, with the help of a mysterious benefactor. For better or worse, Pip's life is defined through his relationships with Dickens' trademark complex supporting cast: Estella, a fellow orphan with whom Pip is infatuated; Miss Havisham, the manipulative and wealthy spinster; Joe Gargery, the closest thing to a parent Pip has ever known; a pair of escaped convicts; and many, many more.

    This is without doubt the most wonderful of all Dickens novels. The struggle Pip has to climb the social ladder without losing sight of his origins is pinnacled at the point when poor Jo Gargery visits him in London. Pip is ashamed of his clumsiness. All the characters are so memorable. I loved them all, from Miss Havisham to Herbert Pocket. This is also more accessible than many of Dickens books in the way it is written and it's shorter length.
