Like so many of Dickens’ works, Great Expectations sweeps up the reader and carries them through a strikingly emotional tale. It is the tale of Pip who slaves away in the forge but still daringly envisions one day having the life of a gentleman. To tell Pip’s story, Dickens begins with his hard rural upbringing and ends in the crowded streets of 19th-century London with adventures of trust and betrayal, risk and reward, and love and loss. Some of Dickens’ most compelling characters are found in the novel. Magwitch is the malevolent and intimidating convict. Estella has surpassing beauty and the self-importance to match it. Miss Havisham is an peculiar bride who was left at the altar.

When it was first published, Great Expectations was praised by many critics and admired by the entire public. Some even consider it to be his best work. Readers and scholars give high marks for its masterful plot, which isn’t characterized by the melodrama that plagued some of his less well-known novels. Always known for his unique characters, Dickens elevated his abilities when crafting the novel’s cast with unmatched realism and depth.

Great Expectations swiftly glides along an emotional journey that leaves the reader profoundly affected by its artful narration, emotional plot, and unsurpassed characters.
