Decode This! Hint: Opening lines of a famous book

Okay,

The opening lines of a famous book have been decoded here. Use your logic and stay away from the Google. Tell me what's written below -

Laugh, how unfair! I've got most of it decoded & still do not recognize the book!! Guess someone needs a literature refresher course, lol.

Big K, if nobody responds in the near future, can I post the decoded text and get 1/2 a point? laugh

I am instructed to communicate to him, said mr. (j,k,z)aggers, throwing his finger at me sideways, that he will come into handsome property. Further, that is the desire of the present possesor of that property, that he be immediately removed from his present sphere of life and from this place, and be brought up as a gentleman-in a word, as a young fellow of great expectations.

Ok, I have not used the internet or any other means in researching this book, so I do not have the first letter of the name-though narrowed it down to three choices. I vote for the "j". It did finally dawn on me that the book of course is the last two words, "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens.

Thanks Big K, this was a lot of fun, how did you make it?
