Annotations for Great Expectations


Baker & Taylor
When a mysterious benefactor enables the orphan boy, Pip, to rise in Victorian society, Pip is educated as a gentleman and snobbishly neglects his childhood friends

Penguin Putnam
The engrossing epic of murder, mysteries and an orphan boy's promise of wealth. As a small boy at Joe Gargery's forge, Pip meets two people who will affect his whole life - an escaped convict he is forced to help, and the eccentric Miss Havisham, whose beautiful, cold ward Estella young Pip adores. But when a secret benefactor pays for him to go to London to become a gentleman, Pip never dreams he will meet the dreadful Magwitch again, nor just how wrong his expectations are.
