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.

A Master Piece indeed.
A Literary Classic.A Great Read For Young or Elderly.
This book was extremely thought provoking and overall just wonderful. Charles Dickens comes through again. Some say this is a sad book but I strongly disagree. There are two endings and I do recommend checking them both out. They are equally interesting and satisfying in my opinion bc it didn’t change or affect the main lesson of the story itself. The book is about sacrifice and priorities and family, the journey through those things and the lessons learned from them.
Seen movie now reading the actual book.
First time reading and what journey 💜. I’ve seen the movie starring Ethan Hawk and I loved it. I didn’t know a book pre existed the movie! I was watching Power Book 1 and they’ve mentioned this book as an assignment to a class. So I was intrigued and took a ride and wow it was an incredible ride.
