❚ “I thought” – Suzy

❚ “A wonderfully complex story which has poverty and hope at its core and the romantic turmoil between Pip and Estella creates perfect tension.  A must read.” – Jo

❚ “And I thought” – Nadine

❚ “And from me” – Ros

❚ “A book that never leaves me and which pops into mind every so often when certain circumstances occur. Though it was written so long ago, it’s amazing how often I can see the personality traits depicted here in people around me! Absolutely one of the best books ever written.” – Rachel
