I'm an Australian VCE student that enjoys reading (when i get the chance), and although great expectations' nature was quite pro-longed, and drawn-out, I found its pleasant mix of ambition, crime, desire and despair to be quote entertaining and as stated by 'Anonymous' April 15th, 2003; a real page-flipper. The text does take a while to get used to, so i would recommend skimming over a plot-summary, prior to reading this 550+ page epic. The stroy does teach us that we make our our futures and wealth and social status don't make character, rather the internal factors such as attitude, ambition and will make the man.<br><br>Any feedback send to my address as listed above
