Description Great Expectations has something for everyone: crime, corruption, unrequited love, undeserved loyalty, and some of the most wonderful characters created. It is the orphan Pip's story of growth and struggle for moral redemption. His rocky route to maturity is conveyed with due regard to the novel's language, its blend of the comic and serious, and themes of money, guilt, desire, destiny and love.
