Great Expectations - Charles Dickens

It took me much longer than it should have to read this book, mostly because I think deep down I didn't want to leave Pip behind, as if by reading him I could help in some way.  What a fantastic, heart-wrenching story.  I absolutely LOVED it, even while my heart ached for Pip's that was breaking.  How do I write a "review" without mentioning all my favorite things/scenes/conversations -- thereby spoiling the story for those that haven't read it...  I can't do that to you.  You need to experience this Dickens all on your own.  It's well worth the time.
