Great ExpectationsAuthor: Charles Dickens Narrator: Alison Larkin Audiobook
Bestselling novelist and award-winning audiobook narrator Alison Larkin changes the gender of Dicken’s most famous character in this dazzling new recording of Great Expectations.
It's the same thrilling story of poverty, prison ships, an old woman jilted at the altar, a beautiful, haughty, damaged young woman, a mysterious financial gift that transforms the life of a young person make up some of the drama in this timeless novel. Only one thing has changed. In this version, Pip is a woman.
In this world it is completely normal for a girl to learn to read and kiss another girl and be able to walk into a tavern without being molested or start a promising career thanks to a mysterious financial donation.
It's an irresistible question. If gender had been simply irrelevant in the 19th century where would we all be now?
