I'm a fourth year student of university and majoring in English literature.
I am going to write a thesis on Great Expectations written by Charles *beep* in the 19th century. It was made into a movie a few years ago.
It is the story of a orphan who bullied by adults around him were expected to come into an inheritance and then his life is changed.
I am going to look at what is the gentleman which the leading character wanted to be.
Please tell me your opinion about Great Expectations .

Who is Charles Beep?? Are we talking about the famous Charles *beep*?
I am guessing that "*beep*" is being changed by Dave's Nana software.
Even in church, you can say, "*beep*", Dave.

Yep I am correct. Come ON Dave, give me a bleeping break. In any case we probably can fool the stupid software by such brilliant subterfuges as D i c k e n s. But why should we have to?

I saw the movie and loved it. It`s one of the greatest films I`ve ever seen!
Do you know the theme song:Life in Mono? It`s fantastic, too!

I am reading the novel "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles D i c k ens. ( I regard this kind of censorship as absurd *beep* *beep* *beep*) The reading is part of my tasks in my career of translatorship here. I find it a bit difficult but his style is so neat and smart that you really enjoy its reading. I haven't read Great Expectations yet. I downloaded it and I expect I will start with it in a couple of months. However I'm most interested in your opinion about the work.
