Click Of The Week

Published on Friday 26th May 2017 by Julie Embleton

My love of Charles Dickens came through studying two of his books during my school years. Even now, (all these years later) I still pick up Great Expectations from time to time. I thought I’d share this article with you this week as I learned some facts that I didn’t know about Dickens. See? Even though my school days are long over I still learn new stuff.

If reading Dickens is not your thing, back in 1998, there was a film version made with Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow, but the BBC made a tv series in 2011 with Gillian Anderson playing Miss Havisham (her pic is the featured image) and the amazing Ray Winstone as Magwitch. If you’re in any way interested, Amazon are currently selling the DVD. I’ll even come round your house and watch it with you.
