Pip and Estella: The Childhood Crush That Not Even Grim 19th Century London and an Insane Guardian Can Stop
Narrated by a middle-aged Pip, Great Expectations can be read on many
levels—as a morality play of a young boy's coming of age and his unexpected
rise from the lower to the leisure class, or as an ironic commentary and social
critique on how money affects everyone around it. It can also be enjoyed as a suspense-filled
mystery complete with secrets, shady characters, thieves and murderers of all
shapes and sizes.
