Great Expectations


Charles Dickens


Social criticism



Read and own.

First read (pre-wiki)Edit


1998 paperback Oxford World's Classics edition, can't remember where I got it. 477 pages, 39 lines per page, 10 blank pages. 1043278 characters total[1], making it 542 'standard' pages long.


Read as part of my effort to read through The Big Read. Can't remember when exactly, presumably before 2008, but not terribly further back than that. It was good. Not super-great, but certainly interesting and absorbing.

Ratings, awards, mentions and recommendationsEdit

Number 17 on the BBC's Big Read.

Number 19 on the 2006 World Book Day poll.
