Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic™ includes a glossary and reader’s notes to help the modern reader contend with Dickens’ complex approach to the human condition.

The first installment of Great Expectations, Charles Dickens’ “lucky thirteenth novel,” appeared in December 1860 and has been delighting readers ever since. An anonymous benefactor plucks young Pip from his life of toil as a blacksmith’s apprentice and thrusts him into London society as a “gentleman of great expectations.” When a mysterious figure from his forgotten past re-emerges, however, every assumption on which Pip based his hopes is exposed as a delusion. How can Pip make amends to the loved ones he left behind, and how can he hope to ever win the affection of the woman he loves, but who is now forever beyond his reach?

Great Expectations contains some of Dickens’ most memorable characters—the affable blacksmith Joe Gargery, the beautiful yet haughty Estella, the enigmatic Miss Havihsam, and the menacing convict, Magwitch—and puts a uniquely Dickensian spin on the age-old Cinderella story.
Amazon.com Review
An absorbing mystery as well as a morality tale, the story of Pip, a poor village lad, and his expectations of wealth is Dickens at his most deliciously readable. The cast of characters includes kindly Joe Gargery, the loyal convict Abel Magwitch and the haunting Miss Havisham. If you have heartstrings, count on them being tugged.
