Great Expectations

The main character, Pip, ends up with Great Expectations thanks to the seeming patronage of the local eccentric rich old lady Miss Havisham.  He starts to get full of himself, but things do not turn out in his life the way he thinks. Pride goes before a fall, and he is humbled and his Great Expectations seem really foolish and shallow in retrospect once he goes through everything he endures in the course of the novel.
