G is for Great Expectations

What is it about this book? I read it once, many years ago and the memory of that experience lodged itself in my imagination. Set in the mid 1800s, it’s a love story, a thriller, a tragic tale of unrequited love and it’s full of great characters; the cold Estella, the manipulative Miss Havisham and the terrifying Magwitch. I think it’s time I read it again, but I might wait for winter. There’s a new film coming soon starring Helena Bonham Carter as Miss H and Gillian Anderson did a fantastic job in the same role in the most recent BBC mini-series.
