Great Expectations

I am only a quarter of the way through Great Expectations.  When I told a co-worker I was reading this novel, she told me that Dickens was paid per word--which explains his lengthy descriptions.  I do know this novel was originally written as a weekly series from December 1, 1860 – August 3, 1861.  Luckily, my short attention span has not been hindered by these tangents.  Perhaps I'll be able to finish this book by next week.

A detailed online biography of Dickens can be located at Dickens' Biography.
What about a movie for the novel's 150th birthday?  Great Expectations
