bleak but totally brilliant
I always avoid books about the holocaust,but this one grabbed me. It is so bleak and sad,especially the chapters in the concentration camps.I was appalled with the domestic violence scenes but was relieved as Miriam became stronger.A gripping read

- The Dickens Collection: An Audible Exclusive Series
- By: Charles Dickens
- Narrated by: Jonathan Pryce
- Length: 18 hrs and 16 mins
When young orphan, Oliver Twist, is sold into an apprenticeship with an undertaker, he leaves behind years of miserable servitude and mistreatment at an English workhouse. Hoping to move on to better things, he decides to escape his new, equally dreary surroundings and head to London. It is there that the novel unravels as Oliver meets a host of larger-than-life characters, including The Artful Dodger, a high-ranking member of a juvenile pickpocketing gang, and their elderly leader, Fagin.
