    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 - these form a series of events that change the orphaned Pip's life forever, and he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman. Dickens' novel depicts Pip's development through adversity as he discovers the true nature of his 'great expectations'.

    Robert says: "That it was by Dickens should have been enough"
    "Dickens was a Genius!"

    Story

    This is a great Dickens novel. Dicken's use of the English language is awe inspiring. I love his sense humor and ability to tell a riveting story. As usual, there are some great characters and many twists and turns in Great Expectations. The reader is excellent and the story is engrossing. It starts with the Graveyard scene, which gave me the shivers! Pip is the main character. The man who helped bring Pip "up by hand" is one of Dicken's most endearing characters. The lawyer character is amazing. What a story! Originally Dicken's novels were generally released in installments and the readers had to wait in suspense for the next publication. Each chapter leaves you hanging. The original readers must have anxiously awaited for a week or a month for the next installment. I am glad we are able to read or listen to Dicken's novels in their entirety. The suspense would have done me in!
