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.
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!
I LIKED IT.....KINDA

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!
Have high hopes!
People are so mean to this poor boy! An overall good book.

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
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!
Willams books are wonderful

I totally like reading books especially his books for children to read this is so good omg that’s why I gave you y’all a five star rating.... for the best books that you y’all doing and selling them to the world so kids and especially for teenagers for reading love stories that he wrote it’s all about Romance and doing movies that he created it for all people can read about or watching it on the movie theaters Spencer Heredia- Hicks
