Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” 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

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.

      😀 I actually bought this book a number of years before I read it, too, Melinda! Finally scooped it out of its prominent place in my book stack and gave it a go. Glad I finally did.
