    From Polapoe
    I love classics and this book is one of my favourites! It's just fun to read.😉
  • Really Good. Not Necessarily Great.

    From Sysyphus 1259
    Honestly (and ironically) this book was not as good as I thought it would be. I’ve tried to read as many classics as I can over the past few years and unlike most, this one just didn’t live up to all the hype. There were long stretches where I struggled to stay interested. Don’t get me wrong, Dickens was a literary genius and the writing is well worth the historical recognition. I just expected it to be a bit more… grand?
  • Meh

    From Jagykhxr
    It was a good book, but it got a little boring at times
  • Charles Dickens is probably the best author in history.

    From GravityBringsYouDown
    I can't believe the incredible scope and wit contained in his volumes. this book is probably one of his best as well, with rich characters, intruging plot and thoughtful themes. My only issue was wanting to freak out on Pip for being so blind and foolish for most of it!

    From Almost Purrfect
    Classics are classics for a reason. This one certainly stood the test of time. I pity those who say they have no time to read, or read only that which is easy and popular to read at the time. Thank you Mr. Dickens, we are enriched by your wisdom.
