      The book about Oliver Twist is one of Dickens most well known novels. It’s full title is Oliver Twist or the Parish Boys Progress.

      It tells about the life of a young boy named Oliver Twist.

      He grows up in an orphanage/workhouse, but runs off and is taken in by a gang of pick pockets in London.

      Through a series of adventure and


      quite a lot of danger he is in the end reunited with what is left of his family.

      Oliver Twist himself isn’t too interesting to me.

      A nice boy, but I like many of the other characters better.

      The Jew Fagin for example, the leader of the gang of pick pockets, is one of the best characters Dickens has written.

      The Artful ...


      • Dodger is also a good character, the mixture between dishonesty and friendship is really nice.

        As a comment to social unfairness and poverty is a great book, although Oliver’s gentlemanlike behavior seems a bit unlikely, but it probably reflects Dickens notions about nature versus nurture.

        The descriptions of London are great and very realistic.

        They are mainly quite bleak, you don’t want to

        live Dickens London, but if you know the city you will recognize many of the places that Oliver visits.

        My main disappointment are the good well-bred female characters, they are a bit too good and sweet and don’t really seem to be off this world at all.

        There are good female characters, like Nancy, one of Fagin’s accomplices, but she’s not an upper class girl.
