Philip Pirrip, known to everyone as Pip, might be one of the most enduring characters of all time. That’s appropriate — if only because it took 195,954 words for Charles Dickens to document Pip’s growth from child to adult in this masterpiece of a book. If you read one book of Dickens before you die, make it this one. There’s all the winding narratives, amusing subplots, and unforgettable characters that you’ll come to expect from a Dickens novel — and one of his best opening scenes besides.
