A Charles Dickens Classic...a must read in the "Classic" novels
Good book, just never really got into Twist. I love Dickens. Somehow, not this one.
Dickens has a wonderful way of writing that brings you through twists and turns. A classic of literature that brings you through England & a poor orphan boys lives.
This is a tale of the orphan who is reared in a workhouse, runs away to London where he is captured by thieves and finally escapes is a novel of social protest, a morality tale and a detective story. Oliver Twist presents some of the most sinister characters in Dickens the master thief, Fagin, the leering Artful Dodger, the murderer, Bill Sikes, along with some of his most sentimental and comical characters. Only dickens could mix terror with farce with pathos with piety in one unified work.
"a classic" readers won't be disappointed in this literature
This is a classic book, and one everyone should read at least once before they die.
Liked this story but not as much as Tale of Two Cities
One of Dickens' classics from the early part of his career...
Although I used to consider abridged books almost amoral, my son has really enjoyed these series, which make the classic adventures much more accessible for the ages at which the stories hold the most appeal. He may go back to the original when he's older -- but meanwhile he has enjoyed the books immensely and has developed a good familiarity with much of the Western canon.
A nice copy of the classic.
I read this book to read a classic, and although some of the prose is long and at times boring. That being said I loved this book, and Its a classic and should be read by all.
Abrilliant reading of Dickens' classic.
