Great Expectations by Charles Dickens should be called Mediocre Expectations. Because that's what I thought by the end. I wanted to love this book, I really did, and I found myself trying reallyreallyreally hard to get into it.
Then I told a co-worker that I was reading it. And he, Lucas, said to me, "People think that just because it's a classic they have to like it. I hated that book." And it gave me the freedom to say that I, too, did not enjoy the book.
I thought the first section was interesting and developed. Then I got lost during the second part and gave up on the third. I appreciate the effort, Mr. Dickens. I really do.
