Hey!
I never had a real connection to Great Expectations (the song). So finally decided to read the novel it's based on. And I have to say, I loved every word of it. The only thing that bothered me was the ending.
Spoiler:
That just doesn't make sense. What do you think about that? And is there a movie that's based on the original ending?Chris

It's amazing how much of Brian's style seems pulled straight from that book. Every single scene with Estella reads like a Gaslight song. Him and Pip are kindred souls.

I've heard him mention it somewhere. I think it was in an old German Interview. I'll see if I can find it... Smile

That's exactly how I felt! As I said, I never really cared for the song, but now that I understand the story behind it it's one of my favourites.
Do you know a movie with the original ending?

One of my favorite novels and the one that convinced me to study English (literature).
