In Great Expectations we are taken into the world of 19th-century England. Packed with curious and fascinating characters, enchanting and dangerous places and situations that are at once exhilarating and horrifying, Great Expectations is a literary gem. Pip, an orphan boy, has a life-changing encounter one day on the moors when he helps an escaped convict named Magwitch by getting him food and a file for his leg irons. From this one act of kindness, Pip starts on a journey to manhood that is full of twists and turns. He dreams of being a gentleman, and miraculously an opportunity is presented that allows him to bring his dream to life. By inheriting a large sum of money, Pip advances in society and all of his expectations seem to come true, but in a way that is, at once, mysterious and disturbing. Ultimately, Pip learns some important lessons about love, forgiveness and redemption. This story is full of surprises, and Dickens masterfully guides us through a world of shadow and light to an ending both poignant and satisfying as Pip realizes his great expectations.
