Review by tinkettleinn
The worst Dickens novel I have ever read--I love Dickens. I find that I am not too keen on his first-person narratives. Read Little Dorrit.
Review by ehimes
People seem to fall into two categories here, they either love Great Expectations or they hate it. I hated it when I was in school. I LOVE it now. It's got some really wonderful dark and twisted imagery in it. I'm not sure how I missed it in school, I'm pretty sure most kids love to read anything twisted or weird.

Great Charles Dickens tale.... saw the old movie, too. A young chap, looking for success..... taught to look for a life beyond his world through courage and risk... He sometimes forgot his past, and those responsible for his strength, but aspired for a greater life.... I love Pip!

I expected more of this book but it was dreadfully long. I had to do some research on it and it made a lot more sense when I realized it was written in serial (as bit entrants in a newspaper) - so it was more economical to the writer to make it last as long as possible. There were parts of it that were interesting and suspenseful. It was obviously well written overall, just lengthy in general.

I love Charles Dickens, he writes an awesome tale and was a smart man with such lines as "Then it is your opinion", I enquired, with some little indignation , "that a man should never..." "...invest portable property in a friend?" said Wemmick. "Certainly he should not. Unless he wants to get rid of the friend, -- and then it becomes a question of how much portable property it may be worth to get rid of him"."So throughout life, our worst weaknesses and meannesses are usually committed for the sake of the people whom we most despise"
