Synopsis

One of Charles Dickens's most renowned and enjoyable novels, Great Expectations tells the story of Pip, an orphan boy who wishes to transcend his humble origins and is unexpectedly given the opportunity to live a life of wealth and respectability. Now a major BBC drama.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is illustrated by various artists and features an afterword by David Pinching.

Over the course of the tale, Pip encounters such famous characters as Miss Havisham, Herbert Pocket and Joe Gargery, and comes to realise that his money is tainted and the girl he loves will not return his affections. Happiness must be found in the things he gave up in pursuit of a more sophisticated life.
