Summary

Featured title in the 2018 PBS Great American Reads 

Dickens’ extraordinary novel of Victorian values 

Great Expectations chronicles the progress of Pip from childhood through adulthood. As he moves from the marshes of Kent to London society, he encounters a variety of extraordinary characters: from Magwitch, the escaped convict, to Miss Havisham and her ward, the arrogant and beautiful Estella.

In this fascinating story, Dickens shows the dangers of being driven by a desire for wealth and social status. Pip must establish a sense of self against the plans which others seem to have for him—and somehow discover a firm set of values and priorities.

This novel is part of Brilliance Audio’s extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.

Reading horrible - way too fast.

I have been listening to the public domain LibriVox reading by Mark F. Smith ( audiobooktreasury dot com) and I bought this because I wanted to use the kindle app to listen to it offline (while traveling). The audiobooktreasury links to this as the kindle version so I thought it was the same narrator, man was I disappointed. Mark Smith does a way better job of narrating, I could not even listen to this one, the narrator reads at 1000 mph and is extremely hard to follow.

Marvellous

The brilliant narration breathed vivid life into this beloved classic. Highly recommend this to anyone who has struggled to get through the book.
