PostSubject: Great Expectations   Sat Apr 14, 2012 6:29 pm

I had to read this for a class once back in high school and just thought it was one of the most amazing coming of age stories ever. I am more inclined to read stuff that shows how hard real life can be and not that everything will always turn out ok and we all live happily ever after. Anyway, here is the synopsis:

The orphan Pip’s terrifying encounter with an escaped convict on the Kent marshes, and his mysterious summons to the house of Miss Havisham and her cold, beautiful ward Estella, form the prelude to his “great expectations.” How Pip comes into a fortune, what he does with it, and what he discovers through his secret benefactor are the ingredients of his struggle for moral redemption.
