Oliver Twist

Charles Dickens


One of Dicken's most popular novels. "Oliver Twist is the story of a young orphan who dares to say, "Please, sir, I want some more." After escaping from the workhouse where he was born, Oliver finds himself on the mean streets of Victorian-era London and unwittingly recruited by a gang of thieving urchins. With them, Oliver encounters the loathsome Fagin, the tragic Nancy, the crafty Artful Dodger, and one of the greatest villains of all time--the terrifying Bill Sikes. Darkened by Dickens's gritty descriptions of street life, the novel is buoyed by the purity of the orphan Oliver. Though he is treated with cruelty and surrounded by coarseness for most of his life, his pious innocence leads him at last to salvation.
