Fast-paced, moving Dickens classic of reversed fortune.

GREAT!!!

Personally, I love books but not usually olden times books such as this but i like books such as Ivanhoe, Swiss Family Robinson, Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew, Oliver Twist, and The Hobbit. those are books like this that i don't usually pick off my shelf but I do sometimes. Books I usually read are like The Hunger Games trilogy, Percy Jackson, Life of Pi, those kind of really action books. Anyhow, back to the book. Violence: The only scene is where the sister slaps people, and Miss Havisham dies from a very graphic fire scene. Sex: none at all whatsoever. Overall I LOVED this book, It is a must read for pre-teens and teens plus throw in a few older adults!

Bad!

I don't know why anyone says this is a good book, I think Great Expectations is the worst book I've ever read! I'm an avid reader and I had to read this for an upcoming book report. Let me just say, whatever morals you've found, I haven't found them, the plot is terrible, the book was so long I wanted to tear my eyes out! And Dickens would ramble on about nothing! And there wasn't ANY plot twists or happy or sad endings. This was a terrible book.
