9780099511939: Oliver Twist (Vintage Classics)

Oliver is an orphan living on the dangerous London streets with no one but himself to rely on. Fleeing from poverty and hardship, he falls in with a criminal street gang who will not let him go, however hard he tries to escape. In Oliver Twist, Dickens graphically conjures up the capital's underworld, full of prostitutes, thieves and lost and homeless children, and gives a voice to the disadvantaged and abused.

Review:

"An unforgettable journey into criminal behaviour that takes me back to my own childhood fantasies" (Malcolm McLaren Guardian)

"The power of [Dickens] is so amazing, that the reader at once becomes his captive" (William Makepeace Thackeray)

"Dickens is huge - like the sky. Pick any page of Dickens and it's immediately recognizable as him, yet he might be doing social satire, or farce, or horror, or a psychological study of a murderer - or any combination of these" (Susanna Clarke)

"The image of little Oliver Twist victimised by poverty, almost seduced by the specious excitement of crime, and then offered the possibility of a lucrative career in authorship is always compelling" ( Guardian)

"We leave him most reluctantly, and so will every reader who has any capacity to see and feel whatsoever is most loveable, hateful, or laughable, in the character of the everyday life about him" ( Examiner)

Book Description:

'This ain't the shop for justice' The Artful Dodger, Oliver Twist
