Pip is an orphan without any expectations – he has no name, no fortune and no prospects. It is only when he begins to visit Miss Havisham, elderly, rich and reclusive, and her adopted niece Estella, that he begins to hope for something better. And when it is revealed that Pip has inherited a large sum of money from a mysterious benefactor, he begins an adventure that will change his life forever.
Epic and memorable, Pip's quest to find the truth about himself is a classic coming-of-age tale and one of Dickens’ most enduring and popular novels.
About the Author
Charles Dickens was born in 1812 and grew up in poverty. This experience influenced ‘Oliver Twist’, the second of his fourteen major novels, which first appeared in 1837. When he died in 1870, he was buried in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey as an indication of his huge popularity as a novelist, which endures to this day.
