    One of the most revered works in English literature, Great Expectations traces the coming of age of a young orphan, Pip, from a boy of shallow aspirations into a man of maturity. From the chilling opening confrontation with an escaped convict to the grand but eerily disheveled estate of bitter old Miss Havisham, all is not what it seems in Dickens’ dark tale of false illusions and thwarted desire.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The story move along at a slow pace, which is typical for stories of this era. But following along is difficult because of the language. It is written in the "Old English" style and I have always had trouble following a story using this type of English. I spend a lot of time trying to understand the language, making it hard to follow the actual plot line.
