Charnelmind The Smart's review of Charles Dickens, Great Expectations


Charles Dickens, Great Expectations is another classic...”

Written on: 02/03/2005 by Charnelmind The Smart (50 reviews written)

Charles Dickens, Great Expectations is another classic tale of a poor young boy who gets a job as a companion the young niece of an eccentric and wealthy woman who was jilted at the altar. She has turned into a bitter old woman, still in her wedding dress who has poisoned the mind of her charge. The boy falls in love with the girl but she rejects him. Years pass and he obtains a secret benefactor who pays for him to go to a school and better himself. When he encounters the young woman again, the old feelings flare up, but will he win her heart? And who is his mysterious benefactor?

This is a very far-fetched tale, and it's rather depressing, yet I did enjoy it when I re-read it, years after having been forced to read it in school. It takes a while to begin to appreciate Dickens' long-windedness but it's worth the effort to try.
