'Oliver Twist' is a great book. I think all those people that gave it 1-stars and 2-stars are narrow-minded, excrutiatingly dumb people that type reviews in for the fun of putting down other peoples great work. Either find some kindergarden book to read, go to school, or get a life.

i just love the characters of dickens, no matter how realistic they are, they make for an entertaining read and strong feelings. a constant up an down of fortunes is really breaking your heart at times, but the witty descriptions of outrageous practices in the society of his time are always refreshing.

I have to admit that I was quite disappointed by this book that started out beautifully. About halfway through the book, Dickens dropped Oliver and started pursuing all of the books other chracters, of which,I might add, there are too many; if he really wanted to keep all of the characters then he should have made the book longer, or scratched a few of them. Although I did understand the book, the excess of characters forces the author to pursue each one of them, thus making the novel complicated. When I say that it was incomplete, I mean that it did not pursue all of Oliver's exploits, it was not a total attack on the system of society back then because it failed to impress sadness upon the reader at the end, simply because Oliver had a great life from twelve onwards. If he had been hung for doing nothing, simply falling into one of Fagin's setups, then this book would have had a bigger impact. Look at Uncle Tom's Cabin, for example. Tom dies an awful death a few days before his rescuer arrives, and Uncle Tom's Cabin caused the Civil War and the end of slavery! Finally, I think that Monks is introduced too late in the story, forcing Dickens to rapidly let the plot unfold at the very end of the book.

Although focusing on the misfortune's of a young protagonist, Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist must not be viewed as a story stictly for adolescents. Dickens, more popular in his time than in modern America, had a subtle way of unveiling the failings and shortcomings of late 19th century English society. It is my belief he hoped to alleviate the misfortunes of everyday life through change by presenting a looking-glass before the English burgeois. What better way to appeal to the decency of man than to present a tortured, half-starved, bright-eyed orphan? Readers will feel a strong sympathy toward Oliver and demand justice. Because justice is done at the close, Dickens succeeds in making his point of the strength of human spirit. He presents hope in a world of despair; sunshine in the fog of London. And although criticized as a "choppy narrative" (this "choppiness" comes stems from the original serialization of the novel) Dickens reminds those of us with a few more years under out lengthening belts, that children, regardless of their lineage, deserve the chance to flourish and will indeed lead productive, honest lives if given love and knowledge rather than hatred and brutality

I am a big fan of Charles Dickens. I think that I might have liked this book better if not for two things. Number One, I hated how the introduction in the beginning said that Charles Dickens was Anti-Semetic when there is so much evidence which is shown in books like "The Friendly Dickens" which show that he is not Anti-Semetic at all. In fact, he drew Fagin as he was because that was just the stereotypical picture of a Jew, and he created Riah in his last novel to make amends for Fagin's evil Jew because it offended the Jewish public. I also didn't find the villians that interesting and when the views left Oliver and turned to Fagin and Sikes I was pretty bored. This novel started out good, but it faltered. I suggest that if you are a big fan of Dickens, buy this novel, but not this edition because of Nancy Springer (the author of the introduction) misleads the audience drastically.

Guten Tag, don't get your knickers in a twist. As the British would say. Da ist was dran, an diesem Spruch.

Even allowing for the excellent reputation of the
Everymans Paperback series, this edition is special.
The explanatory notes make the story fully comprehensible
to first-time readers of the novel; and even readers who
consider themselves experts on Dickens and his times may
find some suprises ontained therein. (If nothing else, the
notes help one "get the jokes".)
The economical price of this volume would alone make it
THE edition for educators to recommend to their students.

I loved this book! I don't care about what the others say about the book not being Charles Dicken's best! I think they the book doesn't deserve the few stars it got from other reviews! This book was exciting and kept me reading. I still can't believe that Bill Sikes killed his own wife! I also saw the movie which is just as good as the book! I love the songs they do in the movie lik Pick a Pocket or Two.
