A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Dickens' famous novel, starring Pam Ferris, Adjoa Andoh and Tim McInnerny with Edward Long as Oliver.

Born and brought up in the appalling deprivation of the workhouse, the orphaned Oliver escapes and heads for London, only to fall into the hands of the notorious Fagin and his gang of child thieves.

But Oliver is an innocent at heart, and the attempts by Fagin and the impudently witty Artful Dodger to teach him the tricks of the pick-pocket's trade lead only to his almost immediate capture. His subsequent rescue, by the kindly Mr Brownlow, is only the beginning of a series of adventures that lead him to an incredible discovery.

This adaptation of Dickens' second novel is a moving tale of innocence and corruption. It features some of his most vital characters, from the diabolical Fagin to the murderous Bill Sikes and his mistress Nancy, whose love for Oliver is both her redemption and her downfall.

    " Although it was great, I didn't really enjoy the story line as much as I usually do with most classics. Still worth reading though. "

    " An extra star for the baddies and specially Fagin, because little Oliver is just an annoying whimp, really... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dillon | 11/1/2013

    " Oliver Twist was a good book. The book begins a little dry but later turns to plot twists that makes the reader want to keep reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Long Williams | 9/22/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzette Gee | 3/31/2013

    " I love the sense of place, rich detail, memorable characters, dry humor. Never mind the slow pace and improbable plot twists. Dickens is awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abhishek | 12/2/2012

    " Dramatic till the very end. You have to relate to those times to establish a connect with the story. It is stark and on the face. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 10/20/2012

    " Great story, the way Dickens writes is utterly satiric and humorous. Obviously not meant to be a Bildungsroman type of novel, so why try to pigeonhole it by that form of literary criticism? A great critique on Victorian society and certainly entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sendhil | 5/29/2012

    " Quickly becoming a huge fan of Charles Dickens. Awesome book - listened to the audio book narrated by Simon Vance - it was pure magic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 8/26/2011

    " I think this is my favorite Dickens so far (although I did really like Little Dorrit, too). Oliver has such a kind heart, and given all the crap that he went through in life, it was so lovely to see him happy, loved, and well cared for in the end. Such a good book. "

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.
