Considered by many to be Dickens' finest novel, Great Expectations
traces the growth of the book's narrator, Philip Pirrip (Pip), from
a boy of shallow dreams to a man with depth of character. From its
famous dramatic opening on the bleak Kentish marshes, the story
abounds with some of Dickens' most memorable characters. Among them
are the kindly blacksmith Joe Gargery, the mysterious convict Abel
Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Havisham and her beautiful ward
Estella, Pip's good-hearted room-mate Herbert Pocket and the
pompous Pumblechook. As Pip unravels the truth behind his own
'great expectations' in his quest to become a gentleman, the
mysteries of the past and the convolutions of fate through a series
of thrilling adventures serve to steer him towards maturity and his
most important discovery of all - the truth about himself.
