My mom gave me this copy of Great Expectations a few years ago, and I have to admit I put off reading it because I was a little intimidated.  It seemed like it would be a difficult read that I would struggle through rather than enjoy.  But I was completely wrong!  This book is fantastic, and I enjoyed every minute of it.  I am ashamed to say this was my first Dickens, but it certainly will not be my last. 

Favorite Quote:

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. 

Disclaimer: My favorite quote was actually the last line in the book, but since I don't want to give away the ending I've chosen the above quote (which is very beautiful).

Why You Should Read It:

It's Dickens- you won't regret it. 

add me on: goodreads
