Great Expectations follows the life of the orphan, Pip. We first meet him as a tiny, terrified child in a village churchyard. Years later, through the help of an anonymous benefactor, Pip will travel to London, full of expectations to become a gentleman.
But his life is already inextricably tangled in a mystery that surrounds a beautiful woman, an embittered recluse, and an ambitious lawyer. Great Expectations is both a finely crafted novel and an acute examination of Victorian society. Filled with unforgettable settings and characters, it achieves greater dramatic richness through Frank Mullers masterful narration.
Dickens supplied two endings to this great work. Both are included in the recording. Young Phillip Pirrips life is shaped by an act of kindness which raises him from poverty to wealth.
One of the greatest works of classic literature, this novel is a timeless tale of love, hope and humanity.
