Description of this Book

In a churchyard, a convict terrifies poor orphan boy pip and threatens to kill him unless Pip furthers his escape. Later, after a secret benefactor gives him a fortune, Pip moves to London, where he cultivates a life with the idle upper class. As Pip becomes a gentleman, he slowly learns the truth about himself and his illusions. Great Expectations reveals Dickens's dark attitudes toward Victorian society and its inherent class structure and materialism. Richly comic and immensely readable, Great Expectations displays vividly drawn characters, moral maelstroms, and the sorrow and pity of love.
