Great Expectations (discounted)
by Charles Dickens
In this unflaggingly suspenseful story of aspirations and moral redemption, humble, orphaned Pip, a ward of his short-tempered older sister and her husband Joe, is apprenticed to the dirty work of the forge but dares to dream of becoming a gentleman. And, indeed it seems as though that dream is destined to come to pass – because one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of “great expectations”. In telling Pip’s story, Dickens traces a boy’s path from a hardscrabble rural life to the teeming streets of 19th – century London, unfolding a gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, and love and loss.
