  • Excellent Story!

    By Way2old
    A much better read than the story told in the movie! Dickens is the same wordy guy as always, but the clever twists of the story are worth wading through. I’d love to see a modern movie of this book made!

    The beginning was delicious, amazing story, great time and place, and you can learn a lot, but the ending was very bland, it didn’t have much context
  • Oliver Twist forever!

    Talk about a story for the ages! Knowing each character inside and out, I was like, “CHARLES!!! Why would you DO this to OLIVER!!!” Such a tale of light and darkness!

    This book was extremely depressing throughout the book but I was enjoyed it nonetheless.

    A bit confusing at the language and time , as it being from a different tone period, but the end is satisfying!!!
  • Very great story

    By _big.nate_
    Similar to Huckleberry Finn, Oliver Twist has great plot and characters all portraying the various classes and people of the time. Dickens does a very great job expressing the themes of poverty, nature v. Nurture, and portrayal of emotions from grief to affection. Definitely recommend to anyone. It’s a definite classic!
