So I’m standing on the platform, waiting for my train. I was early, as I usually am. No problem; I pulled out my [insert trademarked name of electronic reading device here] and continued where I left off in Great Expectations. Ten minutes later, I looked up just as my train was pulling out, with me still standing on the platform. If that isn’t the mark of good writing, I don’t know what is. It’s been a long time since I’ve read any Dickens, and in the interval whenever I thought of him, it was for all the reasons I don’t think he’s a great writer: overdrawn caricatures instead of round figures taken from life, multi-stranded plots in which everything turns out to be connected to everything else, and above all the pathos of miserable childhood. But I decided to give him another try with this book. The plot was familiar from the two filmed versions I’ve seen over the years, but the main plot is only one attraction of the book. There are many side branches that had to be lopped off to make a film, they are interesting to follow as well. More than that, I simply enjoyed the extravagance of his descriptions and his paradoxical sense of humor. And I enjoyed the growing realisation that both Pip and Estelle were the recipients of unexpected bounty in young years, and that the personality of each was warped by it. I did board the next train, continued reading on the way into town, then again on the way home, and couldn’t go to bed last night until I finished, where he left me with the juicy ambiguity of his closing sentence. The man could write, after all. ( )

By 1860, Charles Dickens was a national celebrity and a sort of "elder statesman", now devoting much of his life to speeches, essays, social work, and generally not writing so many novels. Great Expectations is his 21st major work and 13th novel (of 15), and is - I would argue - his third masterpiece, following on from Bleak House and Little Dorrit, although in a very different way to either of them.

The psychological development of Pip Pirrip is perhaps unequalled in Dickens' canon, and it feels as if this is a breakthrough in terms of character. I've not yet read Our Mutual Friend, which I'm told takes this further, but it's certainly a good feeling. Estella herself is an interesting figure but ultimately more of a paper moth than a full human, although that is in some ways deliberate. More to the point, Great Expectations achieves its targets by applying characterisation to numerous supporting characters, such as Orlick and Magwitch, and in the rich history of Miss Havisham, a character who has so haunted Western culture ever since.

It is also perhaps the most challenging of Dickens' novels in its more complicated moral message. Pip's "Great Expectations" in many ways don't seem so bad: success! comfort! Dickens' arguments against them, along the lines of a younger generation coming of age and staying steadfast to moral development, seem admirable, although I can't help seeing him as a man growing older and more disconnected from the younger members of his society.

There's plenty of comedy sandwiched amongst the Gothic here, but what stands out most - as often with Dickens - is the beauty, from the ruined Satis house to the thriving metropolis and back to the rural marshes of Pip's youth. A truly poetic novel, that should cater to even the most Flaubertian of Dickens critics. (I hope!) ( )

Pip doesn't know who his real benefactor is

Better toward the end than at the beginning. Listening to it through tedium was better than trying to read it for myself. ( )

The idea of an innocent boy establishing unconsciously an immense influence over the mind of a hunted felon … haunted Dickens’s imagination until he gathered round it a whole new world of characters and incidents

My father's family name being Pirrip, and my christian name Philip, my infant tongue could make of both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip. So, I called myself Pip, and came to be called Pip.

Neither were my notions of the theological positions to which my Catechism bound me, at all accurate; for, I have a lively remembrance that I supposed my declaration that I was to "walk in the same all the days of my life," laid me under an obligation always to go through the village from our house in one particular direction, and never to vary it by turning down by the wheelwright's or up by the mill.
...a money-box was kept on the kitchen mantel-shelf, in to which it was publicly made known that all my earnings were dropped. I have an impression that they were to be contributed eventually towards the liquidation of the National Debt, but I know I had no hope of any personal participation in the treasure.
Mr. Wopsle's great-aunt kept an evening school in the village; that is to say, she was a ridiculous old woman of limited means and unlimited infirmity, who used to go to sleep from six to seven every evening, in the society of youth who paid two pence per week each, for the improving opportunity of seeing her do it.
I had little objection to his being seen by Herbert or his father, for both of whom I had a respect; but I had the sharpest sensitiveness as to his being seen by Drummle, whom I held in contempt. So, throughout life, our worst weaknesses and meannesses are usually committed for the sake of the people whom we most despise.  (Chapter XXVII)
"Oh! I have a heart to be stabbed in or shot in, I have no doubt," said Estella, "and of course if it ceased to beat I should cease to be. But you know what I mean. I have no softness there, no--sympathy--sentiment--nonsense."
