Great Expectations Charles Dickens Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
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.

User reviews about this book
I can’t remember if I read this book in school, but this time I really enjoyed it. There is a lot of humor in Great Expectations. Plus, Charles Dickens is a master of lyrical prose and some passages passages have descriptions that can make the reader stop and take a breath and read the passage over again.
It’s like reading a dream. Wow
Great classics! Very much enjoyed!
A Master Piece indeed.
A Literary Classic.A Great Read For Young or Elderly.
I loved how tenderly he speaks of himself when he was just a little Pip. The endearing way that he describes his little self, is heartwarming and amusing.
I liked the book although I wish it had a better ending
Charles dickens is one of my favorite authors but this book is so boring.
By Cactus Queen AZ
A masterpiece of human insight... interesting at first, but gets a bit slow. If you persevere in reading, the book takes off at a dead run and finishes with a flourish! Well worth the time to read.
