‘In the little world in which children have their existence, whosever brings them up, there is nothing so finely perceived and so finely felt, as injustice’ Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
Pip’s life as an ordinary country boy is destined to be unexceptional until a chain of mysterious events lead him away from his humble origins and up the social ladder. His efforts to become a London gentleman bring him into contact not just with the upper classes but also with dangerous criminals. His desire to improve himself is matched only by his longing for the icy-hearted Estella, but secrets from the past impede his progress and he has many hard lessons to learn.
