Great Expectations

Great Expectations gets a bad rap for being the very archetype of long, boring literature, but it’s actually quite witty if you care to take the time. It was also written it in a serialized format (Charles Dickens basically released one chapter per week), so plenty of the chapters end on a cliffhanger to keep people interested. This lends the book the same frenetic “I HAVE TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT” energy that once propelled me into a seven-hour binge-watch of Vampire Diaries back in 2015.
