About the book:

Introduction by George Bernard Shaw
 
Pip, a poor orphan being raised by a cruel sister, does not have much in the way of great expectationsuntil he is inexplicably elevated to wealth by an anonymous benefactor. Full of unforgettable charactersincluding a terrifying convict named Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Havisham, and her beautiful but manipulative niece, Estella, Great Expectations is a tale of intrigue, unattainable love, and all of the happiness money cant buy.  Great Expectations has the most wonderful and most perfectly worked-out plot for a novel in the English language, according to John Irving, and J. Hillis Miller declares,  Great Expectations is the most unified and concentrated expression of Dickenss abiding sense of the world, and Pip might be called the archetypal Dickens hero.
