Pack with curious and fascinating characters, enchanting and dangerous places, and situation that are at once exhilarating and horrifying, Great Expectations is a literary gem. Set in England’s 19th century, Pip, and orphan boy, has a life-changing encounter one day on the moors when he helps an escaped convict named Magwitch by getting him food and a file for his leg irons.

From this one act of kindness, Pip starts on a journey to manhood that is full of twists and turns. Ultimately, Pip learns some important lessons about love, forgiveness and redemption.
