Great Expectations

Great Expectations Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Despite abandoning for six months after tiring a bit of the middle bit where its a bit slow and Londons a bit miserable, I returned to it in my Christmas cottage in the countryside. It seemed very fitting for a wintery read in a village. I really did enjoy it again by the end. Though the end itself is quite sad and a bit disappointing in some ways.

I love Joe Gargery, what a lovely bloke, love his dialogue. Theres lots of good character dialogue actually.

Im sure ill return to another Dickes at some point. This was an improvement on Tale of Two Cities

It is so unfair that To2C was your first Dickens as he's a really good author normally. Must have been a blip.

I liked A Tale of Two Cities, but it is true that it is not his best. I loved the descriptive scene of the spilled barrel of wine.
Dickens is one of my faves, but I have many of his works still to read. Sort of books you need lots of uninterrupted time for though - I keep starting Bleak House, leaving it for a while and then losing the thread.
