The society of the early 19th century in England was not especially kind to orphans, and young Pip is no exception. Forced to live a life of sneaking and stealing from an early age, he has trouble finding a place to belong and make a home for the beginning of his life. When he meets the lonely and reclusive Miss Havisham, it seems that his luck changes, as his relationship with her inspires him to begin making an honest living in a trade. But when he suddenly gains a mysterious inheritance, his life is totally transformed, and he is able to live beyond his wildest dreams.

The novel follows Pip’s life as he grows up and has misadventures, romances and friendships gone wrong, and lives a life of luxury different from what he ever imagined. By the end of the novel he is faced with the reality of who gave him this life, and will see parts of it unravel as he uncovers answers that do not live up to his expectations.

Great Expectations is one of Charles Dickens’ most well-known novels, and is beloved for its vivid imagery and fascinating, personable characters. With a balance of humor and earnest thoughtful reflection on poverty and wealth, this novel is a timeless escape.
