    This is the story of a girl called Matilda. She lives in a small village on the tropical island Bougainville. Most people will have never heard of that island near Papua-New Guinea. And doubtfully they ever heard of the bloody uprising and the following sea blockade in 1990. “We thought it would be just a matter of time before the outside world came to help us”, says Matilda. The people on the island were cut off from everything. No newspapers, radio, medicine, hope or whatsoever. At these desperate times the only white man left on the island became the teacher of Matilda. So this is the story of Mr. Watts, called Pop Eye. He teaches about the greatest book ever written, namely ´Great expectations´. The more her own world gets unreal, the more Matilda finds solace in the Victorian London of Charles Dickens and even a friend in the protagonist Mr. Pip. “It was a relief to return to great expectations.” So this is a story about the power of books. Lloyd Jones tells it through the eyes and the simple language of a thirteen year old girl. The beauty of the island unfolds before our eyes, but also the horror of a civil war. It is a great deal to combine fiction with the historic reality. Lloyd Jones surely made it with perfection. The book is the winner of the 2007 Commonwealth Writer´s Prize and was shortlisted for the 2007 Man Booker Prize. Lloyd Jones has written ten novels and lives in New Zealand.
