Great Expectations

Charles Dickens
479 pages
4 Stars
– a young boy helps a convict and he in turns makes the boy’s fortune later in life and in secret. It all comes to naught though and the convict dies and the boy, now a man, must make it on his own. I enjoyed this story, but the main character, except right at the end, is one of the typical “gentlemen” of the times. Loose with money, miserable and doing anything to make that misery disappear. He is a shallow, selfish jerk. Redeemed at the end, but 20-30 pages against 430+ doesn’t do a whole lot.
