One of Charles Dickens most acclaimed works Great Expectations displays the author at the peak of his skills, working a collection of vivid characters through a sprawling plot studded with richly drawn scenes. First appearing in 1861, Great Expectations offers a bounty of the pleasures only this author can provide. This is the sweeping story of Pip, an orphan growing up in an England Dickens brings to tumultuous life on the page. Pip must wrestle with injustice, poverty, duplicity and the trials of love while surrounded by a meticulously woven web of indelible characters. There are Miss Havisham, the spinster once left at the altar and still clad in her wedding dress, her adopted daughter Estella, beloved by Pip but curiously indifferent to all affection, and Abel Magwitch, the fearsome convict whose hidden nature affects Pip in a surprising fashion. These, and many other equally vital and amusing individuals are thrust together and pulled apart as they, and the reader, are borne along on a torrent of pure storytelling power. Great Expectations is arguably its author's finest achievement and one of the greatest novels of the Victorian era. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Great Expectations is both modern and readable.
