    " It is hard to exit the original worlds created by Dickens. I usually manage it crying like a baby. Oliver Twist is top shelf storytelling. The characters are amazing. The setting is perfect. The plot manages to throw out hundreds of threads and ties them all together at the end, while never losing or boring the reader. Weakness? This is probably nit picking, but the story seems to work out too well in the end. Don't get me wrong, I know this is a social novel and FICTION, but I guess I just have a little bit of an issue with the whole melodramatic end, with every shoe finding a foot and every evil getting a noose. Other than that, Dickens shows with 'Oliver Twist' why he is/was the master and the giant of the social novel. "

    " I know this book is supposed to be a classic that everyone loves but I struggled to believe in some of the characters and the coincidences that occur to create the happy ending, which I admit most readers want. It appeared in places to lack fluidity which shows the original serialisation. I enjoyed the story line of the innocent boy born into a life with what looks like no way out and yet he still achieves. I just felt the we didn't know Oliver because we don't see his perspective yet we are supposed to believe in him. All in slightly disappointed but think this is mainly due to my own high expectations. 4 Stars... "

    " Masterful use of irony, biting commentary on the social conditions of Dickens' times. Dickens' character development is a model. "

    " Love it! And, seeing Oliver, the musical on the big screen when I was 12 was really my first foray into musical expression. I had a crush on the actor who planned Oliver! "

    " English society in the 19th century - mostly their coldness, arogance and indifference towards others. It is all about survival of the strongest. "

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.
