I listened to the audiobook of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I enjoyed the narrator of the book. I had read the book a long time ago and I wanted to re-read the book. I read this book as a part of the 32 books mentioned or read by Dr. Spencer Reid of the Criminal Minds show. I rated the book a 4 out of 5 stars!!!
Thanks 🙏 for the tag @EadieB #Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView 1. I used to like moody books ( before the pandemic) 2. I think the tagged book is very moody - but it‘s a favourite Tagging all.Littens who would like to play. 💚🐉
Ever since I first read Dickens's "A tale of two cities" two years ago, I have regarded him as the guy who puts me to sleep. But, since I have begun reading "Great Expectations", I have realised how funny he is. Dickens also uses this dramatic imagery alluding supernatural forces at work. It's quite exciting and I am looking forward to how it all turns out.
The first unabridged Dickens that I have read since childhood, and I am glad that I picked it.
Great novelists speak to us across ages and time zones. Thats what Dickens does. One starts feeling for Pip through his ups and downs while growing up, love Joe's innocent giant heart and can undertand why Miss Havisham and Estella are so harsh and cold. Dickens goes into the depth of his characters and also where they come from. A masterpiece indeed.
Last week I found my Grandma's copy of Great Expectations gifted to her by her Dad in 1947 and today I found this beautiful copy of the same book. I've never read it but I'm so looking forward to reading it the same way my grandma did 74 years ago.
