Great Expectations by Charles Dickens Review
06/05/2011 § 5 Comments
Pip narrates his journey from humble beginnings in childhood to the fulfilment of his ‘Great Expectations’ in the big city at the hands of a mystery benefactor. This is a timeless tale, with unmistakably Dickensian multidimensionality, which draws on the entire sphere of the reader’s emotions. At once a story of intrigue and love, comedy and tragedy, drama and poise, Great Expectations acts as an astute evaluation of the human condition that is unequivocally relevant to society today. Memorable quotes on every page and intricate characterisation deservedly place this novel amongst the best ever written.
