Summary

Oliver Twist, Dickens' second novel, is a thrilling study of childhood innocence thrust into the darkly comic world of Fagin, his apprentice, the Artful Dodger, and their gang of child thieves. Who will help the orphaned Oliver to escape from their clutches and discover his true history?

The original story is even more powerful and compelling than the musical, which has popularized it. Anton Lesser reads with all his intensity and comic versatility.

Great reading of a great book

Anton Lesser was born to read Dickens. He imbues each and every character with its own voice and personality and captures the comedy and caricature of Dickens' world as well as its darker elements. This is a classic tale of innocence and corruption in a brutal time.
