      Charles Dickens is the author of the classic novel, Oliver Twist. His career as a fictional writer started in 1833 when his most stories and essays appeared in periodicals. In 1836, he married the daughter of his friend George Hogarth, Katherine Hogarth.

      • the story.

        I find the book really interesting, another classic read from Charles Dickens. It portrays the social ill issues in the society like child labor. I like the story but I had some conflicts with it in comprehending because the author uses words that are deep.

        In my own honest opinion, I think the writer’s purpose for the story is to discuss the real

The book is entertaining, realistic; a great amount of description was shown through out the story. Life is cruel but not always- this is definitely what the author is stressing out in my view.
