Great Expectations (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 211

Charles Dickens tells the tale of an orphan who grows up to discover that it is quite difficult to live up to one’s expectations and even more difficult to live up to “Great Expectations”.

Summary of the Book

Pip is orphaned at a young age. On a visit to his parents’ graves, the seven-year-old boy runs into an escaped convict who forces him to find food for him. The convict coaxes Pip to help him file away his shackles. Soon, Pip finds a home at the house of a wealthy lady who takes him in to play with her adopted daughter. Pip falls in love with the young girl, and the lady seems to encourage his feelings. However, a mysterious lawyer appears at the house one day and informs Pip that he has come into an inheritance of his own. Years later, Pip is a young man with only debt to his name. He meets the wealthy benefactor who sent him some money, only to discover that it is none other than the convict he helped. The man is still wanted, and he asks for Pip’s help once again. In doing so, Pip discovers that his expectations, the great ones he had of becoming a gentleman, are slowly dying away as he slips into a life of lies and treachery.

About Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens was an English novelist and critic who lived during the Victorian period. He is largely considered to be the greatest novelist of his time, and he was extremely popular even during his own lifetime. Among his other works, Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist and A Christmas Carol enjoy a wide and varied audience.

Great Expectations was adapted into several films, however, the 1946 version starring John Mills, Bernard Miles and Alec Guinness has yet to be surpassed in its portrayal of Dickens’ characters and plot.

Surprised!!

Amazing quality for the price. You wouldn't get this paper quality and service for this price anywhere else. Also, flipkart never forgets the bookmark. Just started reading the book. Definitely a page turner, "can't-keep-it-down" Kind of book. :)

A masterpiece

As one can expect, Great Expectations is not the kind of book you should pick up if you plan to merely pass the time on a flight. Instead, this is the book you should read if you want to be astounded by the art that is literature.
A coming-of-age tale told in a way only Dickens could. The best part about the way the book has been written is that even though the world might be different and the situations unknown to the reader, you will surely relate to each character in some way and be surprised by the honesty of the story.

True Classic

Its a must read classic, every book lover must have it on their bookshelves. Even though set in the past it strikes a cord somewhere, leaving an indelible impression. My first randevu with Dickens was in 5th grade when I read a extract form "Great Expectations" since then I could not get over the desire to read the complete work, finally having done so I am greatly satisfied.

Not for Beginners

This book is not suitable for persons who have newly started to read English fiction. I find the sentence formation used in this book is very complicated. It was very hard for me to understand. It is not like chatan bhagat books. I could not read more than two pages. It was written by Charles dickens in 1861. He has used 151 Years old English. I think I don’t have enough knowledge to read this book.

This books is a story of a young boy, the way Dickens has portrayed the young Pip's story is remarkable, it may be said that he was contemplating his life into pip's life as he too had almost the same life story. must read for a Bibliophile.

Delightful--well, it is Dickens'

You might have heard of Great Expectations through elders or were present enough to remember Pip from your school syllabus. Either way you have decided to buy it and see the end of it and find yourselves stuffed with the knowledge of English language; I wouldn't say your are going to get a bomb neatly wrapped and delivered by a boy in blue uniform, but if your are going take a Classic for such pestilential reason, PLEASE don't. Try dictionary.

Coming to this product, I have not purchased it from flipkart, but I have the very black-and-white book beside as I write this. Collins Classics are th
