    Hardcover ↠ Havisham Epub æ havisham pdf, Havisham PDFDear Mr FrameI recently read Havisham your preuel and retelling of Charles Dickens Great Expectations one of my favorite Victorian novels Your choice to expand the back story of minor character Miss Havisham the most infamous misandry in literary history was brilliant Jilted at the altar she was humiliated and heartbroken living the rest of her days in her tattered white wedding dress in the decaying family mansion Satis House Few female characters have left such a chilling impression on me I was eager to discover your interpretation of how her early life formed her personality and set

    Hardcover ↠ Havisham Epub æ havisham pdf, Havisham PDFFind this and other reviews at one of Dickens' best known characters Miss Havisham has intrigued readers since the release of Great Expectations I'm not a fan of the book itself but even I am not immune to the eerie mystic that clings to the tattered remnants of her dilapidated mansion and decaying wedding dress Like the novel or not it's hard not to wonder how one could end up as psychologically grief stricken as the mistress of Satis House and while we'll never know the full extent of her history from the pen of her creator a

    Hardcover ↠ Havisham Epub æ havisham pdf, Havisham PDFI read Great Expectations in high school which I am sure many of us did and it is actually do for a re read well someday I do remember Miss Havisham as being a nasty and bitter old biddyIn this remarkably well written novel the author tries to enlighten the reader on what made her the mean old character she was The story starts when she is young only her father bringing her up a brewery providing the family fortune I enjoyed this story did feel sorry for her in places but always felt she was a bit self centered even young and this did not change as she grew Does not follow the story lines of Great Expectations exactly but follows it's own course to her mental breakdown and instability Would have like to have had these things explored a little thoroughly I am not a fan of re told stories they so often disappoint Th

    Hardcover ↠ Havisham Epub æ havisham pdf, Havisham PDFwell I read it just after finishing Great Expectations and Mister Pip another excellent novel inspired by GE and was intrigued to find 'another weay of looking' ast Miss Havisham It was fine enjoyable but somehow didnt really add anything for me I had presumed we would think her less 'mad' and unhinged but for me the TV film last Xmas with the much younger Miss Havisham did do that She came over as a real person who could well have lost it following such dreadful treatment loss of trust etc I have nothing to complain about with this book though its not hugely inspiring the way its written i kept feeling that it was wanting in comparison to the richness of Dickens' own writing
