The novel centers around a poor young man by the name of Pip, who is given the chance to make himself a gentleman by a mysterious benefactor. Great Expectations offers a fascinating view of the differences between classes during the Victorian era, as well as a great sense of comedy and pathos.
This book is good if you truly understand and comprehend the story. If you are just trying to find a book to read casually it can be boring.
Review of Great Expectations
This book is dull and tedious with very few exciting moments in these fifty nine chapters,and would drag on with words describing the scenery. There are more words in this book describing his surroundings than actually moving the storyline along and the old English grammar makes it even harder to comprehend and makes it even more tiresome than it could have been in modern day English grammar.The final chapter was not a very good ending,however the chapter before was actually in my opinion was better than the prevailing ending,because in chapter fifty eight it shows where all the living characters were and how they had their happy or unhappy endings. Even though the actual ending showed how in the end Pip never gets the woman that he was obsessing over in almost all the chapters and was talking about nonstop. I would not recommend this book unless you like repetitive books with an awful endings.
Great Expectations far exceeded.

Amazing book. Could not put it down! The humor, candor, building up and subsequent supposed tearing down of Pip was excellent in every way. A true masterpiece.

No movie or mini-series has done it justice.
This is a really great and well written book by Charles Dickens. It's an instant classic.
My brother fell asleep reading this book on the 4th page. Mr.Charles Dickens.
