Product Description

Pip lives with his cruel sister and her kind husband until the day he meets the wild convict Magwich. His moment of adventure over, his life continues on normally until he pays a visit to Miss Havisham, her gloomy house, her lavishly set moldy spread, and her beautiful adopted daughter, Estella. And when an anonymous person gives him money to become a gentleman in London, Pip isn't sure what his expectations for his life are.

Publisher's Description

As a small boy at Joe Gargery's forge, Pip meets two people who will affect his whole life - an escaped convict he is forced to help, and the eccentric Miss Haversham, whose beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella young Pip adores. But when a secret benefactor pays for him to go to London to become a gentleman, Pip never dreams he will meet the dreadful Magwitch again, nor just how wrong his expectations are.

Author Bio

Charles Dickens (1812-70) is one of the most recognized celebrities of English literature. His imagination, wit, mastery of the language and huge creative output single him out as one of the few people who genuinely deserve to be called genius. He had a poverty-stricken childhood and was determined to improve himself. By his early twenties he found a job as a parliamentary reporter and in his spare time wrote sketches of London life for newspapers and magazines. The publication of Pickwick Papers (1836) brought him the fame and fortune he craved. He wrote many other famous books including Oliver Twist and A Tale of Two Cities.
