Summary (From the publisher):

Young Pip did not expect to meet an escaped convict that night on the misty marshes near an English churchyard. Nor did he plan to steal in order to help the felon Magwitch. But he did, and this brief encounter was to change his life forever.

Great Expectations is the story of Pip's life, and of his hopes and dreams - some realized, some shattered. This novel of the ancient stuggle between good and evil is populated by a rich assortment of eccentrics. We meet Miss Havisham, who, jilted at the altar, spends the rest of her life in her wedding dress; Estella, Miss Havisham's niece, who has been brought up to hate men; Joe Gargery, a rough giant who is goodness personified; and the seed Uncle Pumblechook, a hustler.

Originally published serially in All the Year Round from December 1860 to August 1861.
