Great Expectations

Great Expectations

592 pages; Barnes & Noble Classics
The newest Miss Havisham is Helena Bonham Carter, which alone is worth the price of the ticket (and $10 bucket of popcorn). But the novel's poignancy still rests on the power of its language, which on the page can be so easily underlined—and committed to memory. Our favorite? "Take nothing on its looks; take everything on evidence. There's no better rule." 
— Leigh Newman
