Author: Charles Dickens
Narrator: Stephen Fry

The inimitable Stephen Fry reads this definitive edition of Dickens’ most beloved novel, Great Expectations.

“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.”

Great Expectations follows Pip’s life from a plucky but poor and put-upon child in the Kent marshes, to a young man with “great expectations” in London and the choices he must make as a result of his winding journey. On the way, we meet some of Dickens’ most memorable and unique characters – the mysterious and brutal Magwtich; eternally heartbroken Miss Havisham; and her cold-hearted child Estella.

In 2015, Great Expectations was placed 4th on the list of the 100 Greatest British Novels and has been beloved by readers and listeners since its original serialisation and publication in 1860-1.
