netLibrary eBook of the Month: Great Expectations

Updated on: Nov 1, 2005 @ 7:40:00 am

Named one of the Top 100 books of the Millennium by Amazon, Great Expectations stands as one of the most enduring novels ever written. Charles Dickens' Great Expectations is netLibrary's November ebook of the month.
Even readers who have not turned a page of Dickens since senior English will find themselves caught up in the story of young Pip, a poor blacksmith's apprentice who unexpectedly receives great wealth, education, and social privilege. When his secret benefactor turns out to be a convict whom Pip helped as a child, he is forced to reexamine his feelings about society, criminality, and what it means to be a gentleman.
