Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Narrated in the first person, Great Expectations tells the story of Philip Pirrip (known as Pip) from his disadvantaged start as an orphan in the Kent marshes to the improvement in his position following an anonymous allowance. Pip moves to London where, only after many trials, does he learn humility and the value of loyalty. Key Dickens characters abound ? the convict Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Havisham and the pompous Pumblechook. Anton Lesser's abridged recording of this text won awards, and his new unabridged recording also deserves similar praise for its remarkably vivid characterisations.

Synopsis:

When the orphaned Pip comes into a mysterious fortune, he’ s able to realize his dream of becoming a gentleman. Newly rich, and with the manners to prove it, he snubs his old friends and hopes to marry the haughty Estella. One stormy night Pip learns the truth about his benefactor, and while his physical struggles have ended, Pip’ s moral challenges are just beginning. Comical yet deeply moving, "Great Expectations" features some of Dickens’ s most memorable characters, including the convict Magwitch and the jilted Miss Havisham.
