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?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cliff | 2/11/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hanaa | 2/11/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Princess | 2/9/2014

    " this definitely tells one that no matter the situation there's always a way out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 2/5/2014

    " 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! "

    " The Novel Touched My Soul .. Oliver Twist I'll never Forget IT <3 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deviant Geek | 1/21/2014

    " I heard the movie is better than the book and I can see why. Lots of room left for creativity but I suppose dickens was such a strict fellow. Not that I hated the book or anything. But if you could see the scenario being played in the back of your head with missing patches here and there you would know the author didn't complete the job "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mutmainna | 1/17/2014

    " Super book! Would suggest to everyone who love classics, and to those even who don't. All should at least give it a try:) "

    " Required reading in high school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derin Ulcay | 12/29/2013

    " This book had great influence on my childhood. I must have read it 5 times. From the beginning to the very end, this book lures you in. If you want to read a book which makes you wonder what will come up next, this book definitely suits you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skye | 11/28/2013

    " Classic, of course. Not an easy read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Preston | 10/17/2013

    " I cheated a little bit. I listened to it read since whenever I've tried reading this book, I've always struggled with Dickens's thought process and sentence structure. Having listened to this book, however, I really enjoyed Dickens's writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hadeel Mostafa | 8/18/2013

    " i like the story & the movie :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 8/16/2013

    " Excellent book. Put off reading this for years because of The odd glimps on the tv musical. The book is much darker and the characters are great. Looking forward to reading more Dickens. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sojhal Brochal | 6/21/2013

    " Oliver Twist needs reform! The plot moves far too slowly lacks the suspense necassary to capture the reader's attention. The main character needs to be more involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 6/11/2013

    " Surprisingly readable. Good satire, good humor, good story. Nice, though forced, surprises "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ray | 5/18/2013

    " So far I think this book is really good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nadjib Zabat | 2/20/2013

    " This one is pretty one ...the words were written not to be read as to be seen and imagined ...Oliver ..great one "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sumyah Alnajashi | 9/29/2012

    " Although it is very famous, it is not the type of novels I like "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patrick Sanders | 8/6/2012

    " I read this book because I had to in school. I hated this book. Maybe I'd like it now, but at the time, I felt like I was being punished. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margo | 3/2/2012

    " Funnier than I expected, in places, and SO not the Broadway musical. Indelible characters, with the full range of all the evil and good that mankind can exhibit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Iimaan | 12/20/2011

    " I think i read this more than ten times "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla | 8/22/2011

    " I didn't enjoy this Dickens as much as the others I read this year, somehow it just never gelled for me. It is certainly darker than Dickens' other works and there is a more obvious (but not in any way objectionable) effort to reform here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Shilstone | 7/14/2011

    " You gave us plenty, Charlie, but we still wanted more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 6/24/2011

    " Still funny after all these years. I'm becoming a Dickens fan. It's amazing what you'll like when you're not forced to read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamara | 6/24/2011

    " This book is really great.You should read this book and Charles Dickens other books too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Princess | 6/22/2011

    " This was my first book!It's about an orphan lad who roams from place to place and comes across various adventures on his journey! "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
