About those loves and longings dating back to childhood that you still might be keeping alive? You can—and should—let them go.
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. Featured in Oprah's Book Club 2010
