Beautifully structured Dickens classic with an introduction by John Irving. This edition includes two different endings, both written by Dickens. [A]

One of my top two favorite books. The only reason I'm posting this today is that I've gotten at least 8 copies over the years as gifts! Enjoy.

After watching a great movie that portrayed a modernized version of this book, and knowing that it was considered a real classic, I had great expectations for the original novel by Charles Dickens. The old-fashioned style of writing was annoying, especially at first, but after reading through the first few chapters I got a bit used to it. As it turned out to my great surprise, the plot of the original story by Dickens was totally different from the movie and no where near as good. As I got further and further into the book, MY great expectations for it quickly turned into great disappointments.
