    I loved how tenderly he speaks of himself when he was just a little Pip. The endearing way that he describes his little self, is heartwarming and amusing.
  • Nice book

    A masterpiece of human insight... interesting at first, but gets a bit slow. If you persevere in reading, the book takes off at a dead run and finishes with a flourish! Well worth the time to read.

    I grew up reading this book and the story always captivated me. The details of the cobwebs, corpse like bride, and cold hearted manners of most of the characters, kept my attention the entire time. This book started my love of gothic novels. If you enjoy Dickens work I highly recommend it.

    This book is good if you truly understand and comprehend the story. If you are just trying to find a book to read casually it can be boring.
