Thoughts on the book? Just picked it up today....

If you're talking about the Dickens book, I would be cautious. Both my boys had to read it in 9th grade and it caused them to turn away from reading completely. Now they read only books that are assigned, nothing for enjoyment! I've never seen anything like it. I'm sure there is literary value in this book but both my boys are excellent students and it really turned them off.
I believe DAN BROWN IS THE AUTHOR. Not to be confused w/ the Da Vinci Code guy...
I misread the title - thought you were talking about the English Literature classic by Dickens, "Great Expectations." Sorry but we have bitter feelings toward all of England over that book.
