Great Expectations was the first Dickens book I read. I loved the way he built the characters and intertwined all of the relationships. It was a well-built novel and has led me into other Dickens books as well. The surprise ending was very heartfelt for me.

I recommend this books to every type of reader out there -- everybody who reads this book will enjoy it. The action starts on the very first page, when young Pip is attacked by a villain. From there on, you will find entertainment and wisdom as Pip grows up to become a gentleman. Highly recommended.
