Présentation de l'éditeur

In what may be Dickens’s best novel, humble, orphaned Pip is apprenticed to the dirty work of the forge but dares to dream of becoming a gentleman—and one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of “great expectations.” In this gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, the compelling characters include Magwitch, the fearful and fearsome convict; Estella, whose beauty is excelled only by her haughtiness; and the embittered Miss Havisham, an eccentric jilted bride.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A classic that you won't regret (re) reading! 13 janvier 2013

I read GE for the first time in junior high, and reading it again (many) years later just reminds me the profound impact of Dickens and his words on yesterday and today.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 L'humanisme au 19ème siècle 23 novembre 2015
Par arsinoe

J'ai bien aimé ce livre à feuilletons, plein de rebondissements et très humain.
Le livre se lit vite et nous replace au cœur de l'Angleterre du 19ème siècle.
L'auteur donne au public un livre humaniste, cruel mais qui sait garder l'optimisme nécessaire et évite de verser dans le réalisme écœurant.

This is an abridged edition. Shame on Amazon for not saying so in the description. Fortunately this book passed into the publoc domain long ago, so you can find free editions online which are not abridged.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 My "Great Expectations" were satisfied by this book 17 octobre 2013
Par Claudia - Publié sur Amazon.com

Karol S.

It is no coincidence that this book has become a classic in every sense of the word. Charles Dickens' notable work illustrates two themes that are still held to strongly today. One theme found in the book is that the actions that one subjects to in their early life can have an impact in their future life, so it is important to make good choices at a young age. The other is the importance of keeping your expectations low to remain humble. Pip's realization of this is illustrated as his thought process evolves throughout the different phases of his life. This theme is highlighted by the effects of actions that many characters made in their early lives and how those effects impact and connect to many other characters later in the book.

As a high school student, I believe that "Great Expectations" can have a strong influence on my peers because it provides a detailed example of the ways that one's actions today can have an impact on their future. This is an especially important read for young people in my age group to understand because now, more than ever, our actions are important towards determining our future and the relationships we have with others. As a reader, I feel like Dickens does an excellent job in illustrating this theme through examples found throughout the text. Not only does the illustration of a timeless theme satisfy my reading expectations, but so does Charles Dickens use of ornate, detailed writing style. In some parts of the book, Dickens grandiose writing style has the ability to create separate allegorical stories that connect to the plot within the actual story.

Through "Great Expectations" Charles Dickens has accomplished what so many authors strive to achieve. He has provided a real world example to an important theme in the book. He has inspired many young people to make good choices during that crucial time of their life. He has used his grandiose writing style to express important subjects in the book in a way that few other authors could.

Even though one of the themes of the book is to keep your expectations low to stay humble, I must say that after reading this, my expectations for books have been made great

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I Rarely Fall in Love, but I'm in Love with Great Expectations. 12 janvier 2015
Par Aniko Carmean - Publié sur Amazon.com
The last time I read Great Expectations, I was fifteen years old and thought it was the most boring, meandering, pointless story. I was too impatient and too young to grasp the humor, tragedy, warning, and redemption of Pip's tale. Those faults I found in Great Expectations were actually faults in me, the reader; it is with some humble gratification that I read lines of Pip admitting that the shortcomings he found in others were really projections springing from his own young (and selfish) perspective.

In some sense, Great Expectations reads like a soap opera. Each day, I recounted for my husband what had befallen Pip in my readings, and we would be as scandalized or delighted as if we were watching a daytime drama. "No she didn't!" "Oh, he's making a mistake!" Just as with a soap opera, there are far too many coincidences and overlaps to make the story fully believable, but that takes nothing from the pleasure of reading, especially when Dickens manages to infuse so much wry humor into the recounting.

The story, of course, isn't really funny. Dickens shows us Pip, as a little boy, terrorized by an escaped convict. That Pip is also an orphan and beaten by the sister who is "bringing him up by hand," is made only slightly less horrifying by the distance implied by the past-tense narrative. Pip isn't allowed to follow his Uncle's kind and humble example, but is manipulated by a little girl who is raised to be a man-eating monster. In a desperate effort to shed his "coarse" ways, Pip accepts a bequeath of wealth that is frightening in its anonymity. Pip lets the money turn him into a jerk, and he spends years dancing as a marionette to a jilted woman and her pet man-eater. When Pip learns the true nature of his benefactor, we finally see Pip make decisions based on what is right rather than on his attraction to a woman who was using him as an emotional pincushion. Great Expectations is a violent tale, and only those characters who remain humble and kind are allowed a lasting happiness.

I rarely love a book. I devour and enjoy and lust for books, but rarely do I fall in love. I am in love with Great Expectations.

Go now, get a copy of Great Expectations. May it be highlighted and annotated by a tortured high school student, a child as yet unaware that life will shatter most of our "poor dreams." Read, and be thankful that, like Pip, you have lived long enough to outgrow your own selfish youth.

PS I read the 1986 unabridged Bantam Classics edition, which is apparently meatier than this one. However, I wanted my review of the story to be available, so... here it is! If you get a chance, I recommend getting the uncut version.

Great book! Very deep reading - life lesson with so much meaning. All members portrayed different characteristics that had a major effect in the life of Pip. Everyone should read before starting life's journey.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Expectations is a good book 22 décembre 2014
Par Ashish - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Great Expectations is a good book, but not awesome. Story is reasonably fast moving even though language is flowery and dialogues are noteworthy. There is undercurrent of humour and irony in whole narrative though never really explicit. Characters are engaging and some are even haunting too. That said, it always remains a mystery why this is considered popular classic and not others. There is not much substance to story but whole lot of emotional content without being melodramatic. There is too much dependence on coincidences (Estella's being Abel's daughter, Abel and Havisham sharing same attorney, Abel's enemy being Havisham's ex-fiance) and motivation of Abel's in showering great 'Expectations' remains unpalatable (why would any one work hard rest of his life, risk his life, and shower all the wealth on some boy who gave small food, that too under duress and not voluntarily). Overall, I am glad that I read this, though I wouldn't have missed anything if I didn't.
