Review of the Book "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens (1812 – 1870) is one of the greatest English novelists of the Victorian period. Great Expectations, written between 1860/1861, began as a serialized publication in Dickens’s periodical All the Year Round. This is a fascinating story about a poor boy, Pip (Philip Pirrip), who suddenly comes into a fortune and is going to London to become a gentleman.
This story is set in early Victorian England, a time when great social changes were sweeping the nation. The story begins in the churchyard, where the little boy Pip meets an escaped convict named Abel Magwitch and helps him. Magwitch is recaptured. One day Miss Havisham (a old, rich lady, who lives in a scary house with her adopted daughter Estella) invites Pip to her house and he falls in love with the coldhearted Estella. With a help of an anonymous benefactor Pip is able to go to London to become a good education and become a gentleman.
