Bleak Expectations

by Mark Evans - £7.99  Little, Brown Book Group (Corsair) (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781472112583 | ISBN 10: 147211258x

A brilliantly funny novel based on the Radio 4 series
 
Based on the beloved Radio 4 series, Bleak Expectations recounts the remarkable adventures of young Pip Bin as he tries to make his way in a world made all horrible by the machinations of his cruel guardian, Mr Gently Benevolent.
 
Grim circumstances, mistaken identities, nightmarish court-cases, ridiculous names, convenient coincidences to resolve plot problems, over-sentimental death scenes and lots and lots of adjectives: Bleak Expectations is a novel like Charles Dickens might have written after far too much gin.
