Estes and Lauriat, 1881 - 466 pages
One of the finest novels by iconic British author Charles Dickens, this Victorian tale follows the good-natured orphan Pip as he makes his way through life. As a boy, Pip crosses paths with a convict named Magwitch, a man who will heavily influence Pip’s adulthood. Meanwhile, the earnest young man falls for the beautiful Estella, the adoptive daughter of the affluent and eccentric Miss Havisham. Widely considered to be Dickens's last great book, the story is steeped in romance and features the writer's familiar themes of crime, punishment, and societal struggle.

The first of Dickens' novels that I have read, it captured my attention from the start. The relation among all the characters was amazing. However, I read it for school, so my version was the abridged one. Very engrossing read. I now look forward to discovering more of Dickens' novels. Read full review
