Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Great Expectations is a novel written by Charles Dickens. It tells a story that takes place in the marshes, in London, in the river Thames, and other places in England.

It is about a boy called Pip. He has no mother or father and he lives with his sister and with his brother-in-law. He is in love with Estella, but he is poor and she wants to marry a gentleman. She marries a bad man.

Pip helps a prisoner (Abbel Magwitch) and the prisoner gives him money to be a gentleman. When Pip knows the name of his benefactor he doesn’t want the money. At the end Pip goes with Estella and they live together.

The language of the book is easy but it had a lot of new vocabulary. My favourite character is Abbel Magwitch because he is a good person. I don’t like Estella because she is very cold.
