Product Description

Great Expectations is a foundational work in Western literature and one of Dickens' finest stories. Miss Havisham, a jilted bride who continues to live in her wedding dress while her wedding feast moulders on the table, has set up an arrangement where she's raising her adopted daughter Estella to break the heart of young Pip.

While working as a blacksmith apprentice for Joe, a solicitor informs Pip that he's come into means, transforming him into a man of Great Expectations. Assuming that it's from Miss Havisham to enable him to marry Estella, he goes to London to make his way as a gentleman. Pip's assumptions are unfounded, however, and instead he'll encounter other characters from both his and Estella's past.

Classic Line Edition with cover art by Sara Singh. 576 pages. Ages 12 & up.

Publisher's Description

When Philip Pirrip--nicknamed Pip--is forced by an escaped convict to steal food and supplies from his meager home, he doesn't know that this event will transform his life. One of Dickens's most popular novels, Great Expectations follows the orphaned Pip as he grows from poverty into a gentleman, becoming entangled with the strange Miss Havisham and her beautiful but coldhearted ward, Estella, and coming into a fortune from an unknown benefactor. This engrossing work, which recently celebrated its 150th birthday, remains one of Dickens's best.
