An accurate retelling of Charles Dickens' timeless classic.

One of a series of retellings of classic world literature from publisher Real Reads. True to the original plot, characters and theme, this Real Read also reflects the original author's style and syntax. A brilliant, lively, enjoyable introduction to Dickens.

With a hungry, timid request of 'Please sir. Can I have some more?' nine year old orphan Oliver Twist takes his first step on a terrifying journey. In the dark, dangerous streets of Victorian London, Oliver enters the world of people so poor and desperate that they will take any risk and know no mercy. Relentlessly pursued by the menacing criminal world, who should Oliver trust? Are his true friends strong enough to resist the determined plotting of desperate villains?

In this gripping tale of kidnapping, shooting and murder, Dickens explores the threats to a vulnerable boy and asks the eternal question: which is more powerful, good or evil?

    " I liked it. It has the aroma of an early novel, with too much commentary and such. But that's kind of why I like it. It makes a fella cheery. "

    " It was a very interesting book, which gave me a clear picture of how life was like for poor children in the Victorian Times. "

    " Reading this makes you appreciate how gifted Dickens was as a writer who both entertained and dramatised while he also informed. Many of the characters are classic caricatures of real people, exaggerated for effects that, no doubt, his vast public came to expect (and demand?) from Dickens. and many of the big scenes (Dickens is a very melo-dramatic writer) are masterpieces of the fictional art.Dickens is arguably the first modern novelist, whose work was read in mansion and midden! Be warned; this work takes stamina to read. If you're usual fare is chick-lit or trashy thrillers, this will be too much for you,methinks! "
