Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
"Great Expectations" is at once a superbly constructed novel of spellbinding mastery and a profound examination of moral values. Here, some of Dickens's most memorable characters come to play their part in a story whose title itself reflects the deep irony that shaped Dickens's searching reappraisal of the Victorian middle class.

Review:
"When I was young I understood Pip and sympathized with him and felt what he felt in his various horrors and discovery of his paternity. As I got older I...was horrified by his shallowness. It's like watching 'The Graduate' when you were young - and then older and you understand why Mrs. Robinson doesn't want to talk with him in bed."

Richard Russo, Mother Jones, May/June 1995

Review:
"In no other of his romances has the author succeeded so perfectly in at once stimulating and baffling the curiosity of his readers....Altogether we take great joy in recording our conviction that GREAT EXPECTATIONS is a masterpiece...., a work which proves that we may expect from Dickens a series of romances far exceeding in power and artistic skill the productions which have already given him such a preeminence among the novelists of the age."

Atlantic Monthly, September 1861
