Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how โ€œperfectโ€ they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

(Click the title to find the book description/blurb.)

My first time reading Dickens. I wasn’t prepared for the humor and mystery in this novel. Wemmick’s Castle and home life brought such comforting respite. Provis was no angel or do-gooder, and he didn’t need to be. In the end, I personally could have done with or without Estella’s return, but, oh, that faithful, awkward, dearest of Joes was irreplaceable! I was thrice brought to tears while reading about Pip and his two father-like figures in the last few chapters. It was quite refreshing to see Pip come to himself.
