Bleak Expectations

Mark Evans

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Humour

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.

Praise for Bleak Expectations

  • The funniest book since the one I haven't written yet. Mark Evans sets the bar annoyingly high.

  • Deliciously irreverent spoof of all things Victorian and melodramatic....Evans keeps the gag rate high. - The Observer

  • A brilliant Dickens pastiche. - The Telegraph
