Great Expectations Paperback / softback

Part of the Collins Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'My father's family name being Pirrip, and my Christian name Philip, my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip.

So, I called myself Pip, and came to be called Pip.' An orphan destined for a life of misery and poverty, Pip does not have much in the way of expectations.

Only when he begins to visit a rich old woman, Miss Havisham, does he begin to hope for better.

When Pip discovers that he has inherited a large sum of money on the condition that he move to London to live the life of a gentleman, Pip takes his chance to leave behind the world he knows and embark upon a new adventure. An illuminating tale of intrigue, fortune and unattainable love, Great Expectations has a cast of memorable characters, and is one of Dickens' most enduring and popular novels.
