    " Charming and emminently readable. Just totally enjoyable AND it mentioned Isleworth and the Coach and Horses at the top of Syon and then Shepperton. Can't get better than that! Was surprised Fagen came to such a violent end but those were the times. A really good read. "

    " Could have used less madonna/whore complex (or just less madonna), and MUCH more of the Artful Dodge. But I do enjoy Dickens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pie is awesome! | 1/3/2014

    " Oliver Twist was totally amazing. The main theme is survival in these mean streets. Oliver was an orphan that was born in a warehouse, raised in an orphanage, then put back in a warehouse to live. Then he was sold off. After that, he ran away and had to survive on the streets of london. That is an example of survival. "

    " This story is about an orphan boy, Oliver, who runs away from the workhouse so he can be taken in by a group of bad people also known as thieves. It was not a book that made me not put it down I read it for an english lesson in school. I thought the movie was better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa Hite | 8/30/2012

    " I love Dickens' plot lines, but his writing style is so convoluted and wordy!! So hard to follow! This one in particular requires a lot of backstory knowledge about the British systems of the time that he's satirizing. Not my favorite. "

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.
