Great Expectations

Charles Dickens

2002

Great Expectations is one of the best-loved stories of all time, reissued in Puffin Classics, bringing classic literature to each new generation. As a small boy at Joe Gargery's forge, orphan Pip meets two people who will affect his whole life - an escaped convict he is forced to help, and the eccentric Miss Haversham, whose beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella young Pip adores. But when a secret benefactor pays for him to go to London to become a gentleman, Pip never dreams he will meet the dreadful Magwitch again, nor just how wrong his expectations are.
