Summary

Oliver Twist was the second novel by Charles Dickens

First published in 1837, the story of the young orphan Oliver Twist and his life on the mean streets of London has fascinated and shocked ever since.

The young orphan Oliver Twist flees a cruel workhouse for the dirty streets of London, where he falls in with a nefarious gang. As the shrewd Artful Dodger, the menacing Fagin, and the vicious Bill Sikes lead Oliver deeper into a criminal life, a dark conspiracy is revealed around him.

Charles Dickens (1812 - 9 June 1870) is arguably the greatest novelist England ever produced.

Great story, great performance

I had not read this book before. I was very fond of Charles Dicken's novel A Tale of Two Cities when I was in high school. This book exceeded my expectations and the narrator was excellent!
