"Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens

“Great Expectations is not just a story of big dreams and dramatic setbacks, but essentially, as Chesterton put it, of big hesitations.

Pip, a frightened orphan boy, has a terrifying encounter with an escaped prisoner for whom he is forced to procure groceries and a file. Soon after, he is summoned to the gloomy mansion of a rich and reclusive lady as a playmate for a dry, beautiful and haughty girl. There, the orphan learns, for the first time, that his hands are coarse and his boots are too thick.
