Becuase this is not my job I decided early on to limit my reviews to one book per author You can imagine then how hard it was to decide WHICH book of Charles Dickens to review I mean to choose between A Tale of Two Cities Oliver Twist and Great Expectations was downright cruel I have a passionate love you see for each of these stories I finally decided on Great Expectations because it was the novel I had finished most recently That way the other books dont feel so bad So on to Great Expectations Even though I finished this book six months ago I still carry a crystal-clear vision of the village in which the main character Pip grew up including all of the villagers I came to love that little English countryside like a normal person shouldnt That is how well Dickens painted his portait in words This is a story of an impoverished boy who climbs the social totem pole only to find that moneys promise of happiness is an empty one Because Pip is such a rich character we stick with him through thick and thin like a marriage to a naive young man And when its all over done wed vow to do it all over again Charles Dickens was a master of his art He has contributed as much to literature in my opinion as anyone in history including Shakespeare Dickens was that prolific I admire this author like few others I have read - especially given his disruptive upbringing - and highly recommend this book to anyone looking to discover Charles Dickens in his unadultered un-made-for-the-movies condition And if you dont start with Great Expectations Oliver Twist was my second choice
