Great Expectations Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'Hold your noise! Keep still, you little devil, or I'll cut your throat!'Little orphan Pip scarcely imagines how a terrifying encounter with a convict on the lonely marshes will later transform his life.

Pip is more troubled by his visits to strange old Miss Havisham - her decaying wedding dress and the house full of memories - and the beautiful girl Estella who makes him ashamed of his country manners and coarse hands.

A blacksmith's apprentice could never hope to win Estella, but then, young Pip's future might not turn out quite as expected... Includes exclusive material: In 'The Backstory' you can learn about Victorian convicts and the alternative ending to Great Expectations!
