Have you read this book?
I loved this book so much, it’s truly a masterpiece.
The book starts by telling the story of a young boy, named Pip, who lives with his sister and her husband.
Pip’s Uncle Pumblechook arranges for Pip to go to the house of a wealthy reclusive woman, Miss Havisham, to play with her adopted daughter, Estella.
Miss Havisham’s house is very strange for Pip. She was engaged years ago and loved her fiancée very much but he wanted to marry her only for her money.
On the wedding day, he left her and she could not get over that tragic day.
She still wears her wedding dress, she stopped the clock when her fiancée left her, at 9 am, she left all the food on the tables, she shut the windows, anyway, crazy but sad things.
When I read all these things about her, what has happened to her, I was saddened. I could feel her pain, what she had to go through.
On the other hand, I was mad at her, for letting that feeling ruin her life.
After so many years, she could not let that feeling go away, she let it stay in her heart and mind.
