Oliver Twist is an orphan, born into the world of workhouses and poverty. Apprenticed at a young age, he runs away and finds himself with a curious collection of thieves, rogues and murderers. Tragedy and death are constantly at his heels. Oliver struggles with the burden of being a child and of being poor in industrial England.

In this tale, Dickens shows that poverty breeds crime and that the road from the workhouse to Fagin's vicious gang is short and straight. Download and start listening now!

    " Well, I finally finished re-reading Oliver Twist. Also known as, how much bad stuff can happen to one poor orphan boy? It took me a while to finish reading, not because of the story itself, but simply because of other time issues. I enjoyed the story and the ideas. I love Dickens' writing style, I just wish I'd been able to read more of it at a time during one sitting. Now that I've re-read this one, I'd like to re-read more of his work. "

    " Oliver Twist is far from Dickens' best novel. In fact, I would say it is my least favorite of those I have read so far. Although it starts off very strongly as an almost Swiftian satire, the satirical edge is abandoned over the course of the novel in favor of an increasingly clumsy and convoluted plot. It's a shame, because it could have really been great but ended up being merely good. Still, it was one of Dickens' earlier novels so he can be forgiven for its amateurishness in comparison to his later work. "
