I frequently will recite the opening line of Great Expectations from memory with absolutely no contextual relevance for doing so, that is how tight I am with that book

Can’t recite it by heart, but didn’t it have something to do with the fact that all his childish tongue could make of either of his names (Philip Pirrip) was ‘Pip’?

Finally finished Great Expectations! Felt a little like a marathon, but a good book. It took me ages to get into it, but the last half was great. 

It’s been a long time, but I really enjoyed ‘Great Expectations.’ Which of the endings did you prefer?

I’m sorry but I have to butt in whenever I hear mention of Great Expectations. I have read that book four times, it was my first Dickens, the only literary analysis I ever got a perfect mark on in AP Lit was my Great Expectations paper, that book and I are tight

And, as messed up as she was, did you have a strange fascination with Miss Havisham? (or is that just me?)

I love the kind of books that keep me up at night but still propel me with energetic and enlightened enthusiasm into the next day.
