WORST BOOK EVER!!!

THIS BOOK WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! Although sophisticated, it is extremely boring to read and has way too much detail! THERE IS NOT THAT MUCH TO SAY! I FEEL LIKE I READ 500 pgs. ON SOMETHING THAT COULD EASILY BE WRITTEN IN 200! ITS 500 pgs. ABOUT SOMEONE COMING INTO PROPERTY! BIG DEAL! It almost made me cry it was so boring. I almost didn't finish it and i absolutely love reading and have almost never put down a book and not finished. However horrible, if u want a book to put u to sleep, ITS THE RIGHT BOOK FOR YOU!
Anyway, all in all, what i'm saying is that its horrible, DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eye-opening

This book will stick with you long after you finish reading it. It's the kind of book that gives you insights into yourself and those around you. Though it is the story of a young boy's coming of age, it can speak to anyone. Read and enjoy; Dickens is priceless!

Dickens' Best

Of all Charles Dickens' novels, this is my favorite. Plenty of pathos, and it really kept me guessing. Pip is a very fallible hero, which is more interesting than some of the paragons you find in other books.

Great Expectations

Memorable characters but DEPRESSING. This depression is understandable because historically 19th Century living was hard dirty and short for most people where ever they happened to live. I would not recommend this book to anyone without warning them of the tone of the book
