A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor - these form a series of events that change the orphaned Pip's life forever, and he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman. Dickens's haunting late novel depicts Pip's education and development through adversity as he discovers thetrue nature of his 'great expectations'.

I reserved and then picked up this audio book up not realizing that it is abridged, which means shortened, to only 3 cd's or three hours. There is another version that is 15 cd's, I have to go switch them. It does say that in the details, I just missed it.
