Summary:

Great Expectations is written in the first person and is virtually a fictional autobiography of "Pip" from his childhood, through often painful experiences, to adulthood. It charts his progress as he moves from the Kent marshes - his social status radically changed having gained an unknown benefactor - to busy commercial London. The book is richly populated with a variety of extraordinary characters many of whom, unbeknownst to them, have lives that are inextricably linked to the others. It is all there, love, hate, passion, humour, rejection, duplicity, betrayal, a whole gamut of emotions and human strengths and weaknesses . This is one of Dickens most fascinating, and disturbing novels. (Summary by Peter Keeble)

    It was wonderful to hear this encouraging story of Pip once again. I last read this 35 or more years ago as a school girl. There is much to learn from the wisdom Pip acquires in this exciting tale. Well read and very enjoyable.
