"Honor Among Thieves": Deep Dive into Dickens 2: Great Expectations, ch. 5-7
Show Notes

 Welcome to our readalong of the Victorian classic, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Today we see that there may in fact be honor among thieves, and then we get some background information on the marriage of Mr and Mrs. Joe Gargery. I'm not sure it answers any of our questions from last week, but it gives us some food for thought. 

Some questions I have for us - 
Why does the convict take credit for Pip's stealing him food, drink etc?
Do we like Mrs. Joe any better this week now that we learn just a teeny bit more about her? And finally - can Joe Gargery get any better? 

Let me know your thoughts in the comments, or you can check out our discord channel and I'm also on voxer! Send me a message and I'll add you to our group chat.
