Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Charles Dickens’ classic explores potent themes like good versus evil, crime, repentance, love and betrayal. At the center of the story is Pip, an impoverished orphan who dreams of a better life. When a mysterious benefactor gifts Pip a substantial fortune, he’s rescued from a life of deprivation and abuse-and introduced to a memorable host of characters: the bizarre Miss Havisham, a wealthy heiress who was spurned at the altar; her cold, austere ward Estella, who eventually breaks Pip’s heart; and an escaped convict who teaches Pip that people aren’t always what they seem.


Dickens’ novel-which was originally serialized in a weekly newspaper-contains major plot twists at every turn, which accounts for its enduring popularity. It’s a gripping read and a thrilling portrait of Victorian England.

Classics are classics for a reason. This one certainly stood the test of time. I pity those who say they have no time to read, or read only that which is easy and popular to read at the time. Thank you Mr. Dickens, we are enriched by your wisdom.

Meh

It was a good book, but it got a little boring at times

Not quite what I expected it to be.

Long winded and dry, I’m afraid.
