Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
This was a good book, I enjoyed reading it. The basic plot is following the life of an orphan boy. He is being raised by his sister and her blacksmith husband. His name is Pip he runs into a convict one day and helps him out. Pip is invited to a house to play with a girl named Estella. He falls in love. A few years pass Estella leaves to study abroad. A lawyer named Jaggers tells Pip that he has a benefactor and is to become a gentleman in London. Pip meets a man named Herbert and they become good friends. Then Pips secret benefactor is revealed. I can’t tell you anymore or else it will spoil the ending.
