    Review of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
    5.0 out of 5
    Greatest books
    This novel is undoubtedly one of the greatest books I have yet to read and buy essay online. It captures the detailed sense of human nature through whimsical characters. It it relatable and will tap you into a series of emotions that you have never experienced before. I have yet to relate to any character in any book more than I do to Pip. His chasing after something unattarsonal feelings. He also, like most people, believes that happiness is attained through riches and wealth. The positive characters that he meets on his journey to adulthood prove this wrong by supporting Pip and being generous to him through their own troubles. The characters and plot will enthrall you and transport you into the story. The beautiful homes and settings, such as Wemmick's house, provide a sense of serenity during Pip's fast and ever-changing life. In conclusion, this book has changed my life. It let me see the joy one can get when they focus on the goodness in the world. Though I am young, this book opened my eyes and led me to be more aware of human nature than most adults are.
