The story is about an orphan, Oliver Twist, who endures a miserable existence in a workhouse and then is placed with an undertaker. He escapes and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, leader of a gang of juvenile pickpockets.
I lovely story deep in message and heart. A real joy reading at an earlier time. Makes one grateful to be.
Very well written and told I enjoyed it very much.
This book too me more than 2 years to finish. I must say I became very attached to the characters and by the end I was almost in tears. Oliver Twist is a must read- even if takes a while. Some parts are hard to get through but when you get the dramatic last few chapters it is well worth it. One of Dickens' best in my opinion- but it's the only one I've actually finished. 😅😅

I am sorry it took me all these years to read this wonderful gem of a story about love and betrayal and broken dreams m, and hope beyond all reason. This is a great book. If you haven't read it I highly encourage you to do so. Excellent writing.
The Happiest Sad Tale
A love story.
'Oliver Twist' is the bleakest and brightest of tales. Charles Dickens weaves all of the elements for a gripping story into his book. What I love most, however, is Mr. Dickens' ability to paint a world, a character, a situation, a single sentiment with nothing but words. It was a treat and an education reading this book. The characters are vivid. They are awful and delightful. Throughout the reading are included words of wisdom--quotes which I paused to highlight. I will reread them time and again. I highly recommend this book to all story lovers. It is a masterpiece.
I was in 6th grade when I first read it and have been in love with it since. One of my favorite books my Charles Dickens!
Understanding the World of Oliver Twist
Most people, at first glance, will turn up their noses at the thought of reading a novel written by one of the oldest, and most renowned, authors of our time, but as they say, you cannot judge a book by its cover. Without giving away the plot or contents of the book, Oliver Twist, by Charles Dickens, is a fantastic piece of literature, as it portrays realistic characters and worldly concepts that give the reader a sense of the reality Mr. Dickens lived in, in Victorian England, as a lad. It continuously grips the reader with anticipation and constantly gives us the opportunity of syncing with the characters' actions, thoughts and feelings. An outstanding work of art and an even better biography of the young lad, and main character, Oliver Twist.
Horrible book absolutely terrible I have never read anything as horrible as this it was a monumental waste of my time and I hope I never have the displeasure of reading this book again.
This book is good
