Charles Dickens

Oliver Twist

Abandoned at an early age, Oliver Twist is forced to live in a dark and dismal London workhouse lorded over by awful Mr. Bumble who cheats the boys of their meager rations! Desperate but determined, Oliver makes his escape. But what he discovers in the harsh streets of London’s underworld makes the workhouse look like a picnic. Penniless and alone, he is lured into a world of crime by the wily Fagin — the nefarious mastermind of a gang of pint-sized pickpockets.
Will a life of crime pay off for young Oliver? Or will it earn him a one-way ticket to the gallows?

    Too old fashioned. I've always been hearing about this book, and that it's great and all . But when I read it myself, even thought I knew it was a classic, therefore based in older times, I found in all most every third word was a word I did not understand, or a word infrequently used in modern day to day life.

    Rather complicated language, it was difficult to follow sometimes

    Very hard to read.I'm not a native english speaker and reading this book was almost impossible to comprehend because of the very old english words.Otherwise the story was interesting (from what I was able to understand :) )

    was no very difficult matter for the boy to call tears into his eyes. Hunger and recent ill-usage are great assistants if you want to cry; and Oliver cried very naturally indeed.
