    "Great Expectations is one of my favorite books. I love how Dickens created the character of Pip-well, Pip creates himself, out of his own words--and makes us care about him, even as we cringe at the type of person he is becoming. There are scenes in which I want to shake Pip until he starts acting sensibly and respectfully, but every time I reread the book, I must remind myself that Pip will learn his lesson in time--and learn it he does. Dickens shows us how a boy can grow into a superficial, snobbish "gentleman," and how he can be shown the emptiness of all his assumptions. A masterwork from a master writer!"

    "Haven't started reading this yet but it came quickly and in great condition. The price they're selling it for was also very good considering it's about $10 at my local book store."

    "This is an amazing classic story. I loved reading this story when I was younger and often re-read it again. It is a tale about a boy named Pip and his journey through life. This book is still a page turner even though it is so old. Some tales are timeless. "

    "I avoided reading books by Charles Dickens because I thought the old style of English would be too tough to work through and keep my interest. I was wrong. I waited 64 years before I figured this out. Maybe I needed to wait until this before I could appreciate his work. It is basically a story of a young orphan boy, named Pip, coming of age in the mid- 19th century. It is a life full of characters both good, bad and in between. The main thrust though is how theses characters all affect young Pip's beliefs; fears and... great expectations. As he grows he finds that many are not what he originally thought them to be. However, they are what they are. The story is about how Pip learns to deal with them and life's twist and turns"

    "This is a classic book by Charles Dickens. Everyone should read this book if only to say they've read it. "

    "This is one of those books that i "had to read in high school which I have gone to again. Dickens books can be too repetitve on theme, but this is the best of his works in my opinion. The twists and turns in the life of Pip keep the book interested and it follows well what life would have been like in Victorian England."

    "Great Expectations is a novel written by Charles Dickens, who is arguably most well known for his work A Christmas Carol. Great Expectations is just as great and timeless as A Christmas Carol and a good book for younger people to read in my opinion."

    "I really enjoyed reading this book when I was in 9th grade. Charles Dickens way of writing was something that I learned to enjoy quite a bit. Although, I know several others in my class hated the book. It is a classic, but it doesn't have romance in it the traditional sense. Thus, I would not consider it one of the best classic romance books."
