As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to say, Pip is one of the most infuriating characters I've ever had the pleasure to read. I think, throughout the novel and my college class, we've all agreed that there are many moments where we'd like to punch Pip right in the teeth. There are moments where his misfortunes gave me sadistic pleasure and miniature triumphs.
I also find it interesting that this novel has alternate endings! When Dickens originally finished the novel, a friend(?) Edward Bulwer-Lytton had convinced Dickens that his original ending was too sad! (Indeed!) Therefor, Dickens rewrote the ending and thus we have TWO possible endings to Great Expectations.
Ironically, there is a contest sponsored by the English Department at the San Jose State University inspired by Bulwer-Lytton. The goal is to write the worst opening sentence imaginable. It is known, among fans of literature and writers, that Bulwer-Lytton's greatest achievement (or most notorious), is writing the worst opening sentence of any novel ever written. "It was a dark and stormy night."
Dickens, why would you take the advice on how to finish a novel from someone who can't even start off a novel?
This is one of those scam books becoming popular that are cheap to make and sell, likely generated by programs copying text from online versions.. Do not purchase.
