Gerald Dickens, great, great grandson of Charles Dickens, reads this traditional tale.

Oliver Twist is the second novel by English author Charles Dickens. The time honoured story is about the orphan Oliver Twist, who escapes from a workhouse and travels to London where he meets the renowned Artful Dodger, leader of a gang of juvenile pickpockets. Oliver is led to the lair of their elderly criminal trainer Fagin, naively unaware of their unlawful activities.

It is likely that Dickens's own early youth as a child labourer contributed to the story's development.

    " This book is very well written, but also confusing. I loved the story and the way Dickens was able to portray the desolate life of the poor in england. Although some of the coincidences were unbelievable so the story does not quite portray a realistic life story. "

    " O.T. is probably the best book in the universe, this one is a life-changer!Characters,setting take you back to the seedy, frightening world of O.T.; when crumb-snatchers, chimney-sweeps, mud-larks, grave- diggers, coal-diggers roamed the streets,and innocence was the prey! Charles Dickens IS the master of characterization-we find ourselves watching in horror,compassion,hilarity with every turn. "

    " If based on storyline it was a great book, so 4.5 stars but I'm not into literature much, so 3.5 stars. Halfway through the pages was pretty okay. But I skipped few pages because I don't have the whole day to read this. Should re-read this after final exams. "

    " 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. "

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.
