I was a bit disappointed in a book I started last night, so before heading to bed, I was trying to figure out what book I wanted to accompany me. I then suddenly had a strong desire to read some of one of my most favorite reads, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. This book is so wonderful. There are so many parts I find amusingly fun to read, and find myself laughing aloud (which is rare in my reading). I find this specific part of the beginning funny. I think of all the books I have ever read, the characters from this one specifically has made an imprint upon my soul. I will always think upon Joe as a quiet child-like grown creature, and Mrs. Joe as some raging woman ready to unleash her wrath upon the world...or just Pip. And little Pip, I cannot praise Dickens enough for how he got the inner workings and behaviors of a child so perfectly.
