Great Expectations

  My rating 5 of 5 stars

Pip is a poor orphan boy living with his older sister and her husband. One day, he is quiet unexpectedly made into a "gentleman" by an unknown benefactor. Pip leaves his home and his family to enjoy his newfound wealth, but in the end he discovers that there are some things money can't buy.
This book is amazing! True, Dickens does get a bit wordy at times. But he can draw up the most complex plots! By the end of this book, you will be amazing at how everything works out. I love this story, definitely recommend!
I also recommend BBC's television production of this title, it was an exceptional movie that stayed fairly true to the book.
