      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    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.
