Great Expectations Book Summary

Great Expectations is Charles Dickens’s beloved, autobiographical tale of a poor boy haunted by a dark secret and harboring grand hopes for his future as a gentleman. Pip, the story’s narrator, takes us through his early life—from his brush with an escaped convict on the marshes of southeast England to his exposure to genteel society through the warped old Miss Havisham and her icy protégé, the alluring young Estella. Apprenticed to the blacksmith, the tender-hearted Joe, Pip’s  fortunes change dramatically thanks to a mysterious benefactor, and he must figure out what is real and what is false as he navigates his new world, while never quite escaping his old. Considered by many to be Dickens’s greatest work, Great Expectations will transport you, move you, and stay with you forever.

Beautifully yet simply formatted, carefully edited, and featuring more than 30 illustrations from the artists who realized the first serialized chapters and many of the early book editions of Great Expectations, this is the definitive digital version of the Dickens classic.

Includes a short biography of Charles Dickens and an addendum of his originally conceived ending.

    Excellent writing, giving us to contemplate each action. The writing makes us discover words that are seldom used now. It was enjoyable to research words and see how they make this story evolve.

    Great Expectations was too long and the story line seemed to drag on. I could barely finish it. Most of the characters were unbelievable.

    In all fairness, i had to read this for a school assignment so i might be biased. 1. Good plot idea, seemed intriguing when i read the spoilers. However, it is quite complex if you dont pay attention and forget what had recently happened. 2. Waaaaaaay too long. So much pointless conversation and detail that has little contribution to the book as a whole. 3. Not too easy to read, which is saying a lot for me. It is very much written in the vernacular of the time and much time will most likely be spent researching the meanings of various phrases and words. 4. If this is for an assignment, rather than your personal interest (to each his own), it is what i like to call an "overanalyzed book" that has so much written and analyzed about it that while it will be easy to do most of your assignments, it will not be easy or at all pleasing to synthesize. Would i reccommend it to a friend? No.
