5.0 out of 5 stars e-books
Great Expectations as an e-book does not detract from a printed version. I shall certainly buy more dickens classics in this format.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality
I had read this book in paperback years ago and fancied revisiting it with adult eyes. I suppose I could have picked it up for a quid in a discount book shop but the Kindle version for free seemed a no brainer. Wrong! The quality control department must have been on strike when this book was digitally transferred, it's got loads of spelling mistakes and, on my copy at...

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality, 16 Jan 2013

This review is from: Great Expectations (Kindle Edition)
I had read this book in paperback years ago and fancied revisiting it with adult eyes. I suppose I could have picked it up for a quid in a discount book shop but the Kindle version for free seemed a no brainer. Wrong! The quality control department must have been on strike when this book was digitally transferred, it's got loads of spelling mistakes and, on my copy at least, V's have been replaced by W's! I only managed a dozen pages before I could take no more and gave up. My recommendation? Go buy the Penguin classic version in paperback, avoid this one, it's just not very good.

I think it's wonderful that one can enjoy such classics for completely free. I loved the book, as I love all of Dickens' novels. Thank you Amazon.

Excellent story that is crammed full of beautiful description. The pace is exquisite, and the characters well developed. The only problem is deciding which Dickens novel I should read next!

I decided to re-read this classic, (previously studied for GCE many years ago), prior to going to see the current West End production. I'd forgotten just how good this book is and still so easy to read despite the passage of time. It certainly enhanced my enjoyment of the theatre adaptation. Definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded my expectations, 13 Feb 2013

I didn't really expect to enjoy this. I just thought that as I live near Portsmouth (where Dickens was born) and read a lot I really should take a look at something of his. I'm really glad I did as I loved it. The story was absorbing and the characters either really likeable or so much not so that I was compelled to read on in the hope that something bad would happen to them.

I enjoyed the book and liked the characters but I missed Dickens usual wonderful conjuring of his characters with his masterful word pictures.
