From its famous dramatic opening on the bleak Kentish marshes, the story abounds with some of Dicken' s most memorable characters. Among them are the kindly blacksmith Joe Gargery, the mysterious convict Abel Magwitch, the eccentric Miss Haversham and her beautiful ward Estella, Pip' s good-hearted room-mate Herbert Pocket and the pompous Pumblechook. Considered by many to be Dicken' s finest novel, "Great Expectations" traces the growth of the book' s narrator, Philip Pirrip (Pip), from a boy of shallow dreams to a man with depth of character. As Pip unravels the truth behind his own ' great expectations' in his quest to become a gentleman, the mysteries of the past and the convolutions of fate through a series of thrilling adventures serve to steer him towards maturity and his most important discovery of all - the truth about himself.
