Dickens does that kind of thing in various places. Man, can he ever draw a creepy character.



Wemmick (remember, I looked this up, I barely remember English class in high school) is said to a splti personalty, differing in his public and private personas.

I'm starting to really like this book... conversely, I'm starting to wanting to punch Pip in the face.

I'm about 3/4ths done with this book and it's greatly enjoyable.
The reveal of Pip's benefactor... how the whole scene was set up (the stormy night, stuck in the house that Pip says feels like being in a lighthouse during a bad storm), all for making it a much better read than I was giving it.
