Dicken has beautifully portrayted all the characters ,giving insight of psychology of Pip,Miss Havisham and the way he brougt up Estella to take revenge from male gender.Pip was fortunate enough to get good education and life style in London with the help of the convict who met little Pip in graveyard in early chapters of this novel.Miss Havisham was very unlucky ,his husbend left her at the very first evening of her marriage ,but she wanted to take her revenge from society and for that purpose she adopted Estella and poor Pip also became her victim a nd she broke her heart also.Well,it is a very good novel and i enjoyed reading it.

It was just too long and complicated. I wrote down all of the characters, which helped to keep track, but if I hadn't had daily installments I probably would have forgotten what happened halfway through! However, once you understand the tricky Dickens language, there were actually some really funny parts and scathing criticisms of Victorian society.

I don't remember ever reading this Dickens classic. If I haven't, I am delighted I am reading it now. I believe the author has the same great<br/>gift as Orson Scott Card, the ability to convey the very inner thoughts and feelings of a young person.

Many years ago I read Hard Times as part of a degree course. Outside of A Christmas Carol in abridged form I have steered clear of Dickens since. But Hard Times is a far cry from Great Expectations. In this book I saw Dickens the story teller: telling a wonderful tale with a cast of memorable characters, much variation of pace, and a strong plot. Loved it! The ghost of Hard Times has been exorcised. I shall be reading more!
