      Oliver Twist THE BOOK is crap and has NO songs in it, I couldn t believe it So I googled and get this, it turns out they put those in the movie and Dickens had nothing to do with it But since they were the best bit of the film, you can understand my horror and bereft sense of disappointment when I finally came to pick up the book How could Dickens NOT have thought of having little Oliver sing Where Is Love when chucked into the cellar or Who Will Buy This Loverly Morning when he wakes up in his [...]

      I looooooooved this book Another Dickensother favorite Please, sir, I want some Jane Austen and Charles Dickens have been dueling inside my WOW center for some time in a titanic, see saw struggle for the title of greatest word smither story crafter in all of English literature Ms Austen previously caused heart palpitations and a slew of gasms with Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility which left me spent like a cheap nickel However, Sir Dickens, being a slick, wily devil responded in ki [...]

      In recent years, I have become bewitched by all things gothic, and I was curious to discover to what extent gothic tropes and examplars may have influenced the imagery and structure of Dicken s first serious novel Specifically, I was interested in how gothic elements might be expressed in Oliver Twist s urban atmosphere Had Hugo s Paris thieves guild left its mark upon Fagin and his charges Had Scott s Highland robbers caves influenced Dickens lowlife dens Were these dirty London streets much th [...]

      I swear Dickens named one of his characters Master Bates on purpose.

      I have seen the 1968 academy award winning musical film Oliver so many times that we eventually just bought the DVD David Lean s 1948 film starring Alec Guinness as Fagan and Robert Newton as Bill Sykes is another favorite These film adaptations are so ubiquitous and so endearing that it is easy to forget what a rare accomplishment was Dickens original novel One of Dickens earliest novels and like most was first published as a series of installments, Oliver Twist begins Dickens brilliant career [...]

      Oliver Twist is one of Charles Dickens s best known stories Characters such as the evil Fagin, with his band of thieves and villains, the Artful Dodger with all the airs and manners of a man, the house breaker Sikes and his dog, the conscience stricken but flawed Nancy, the frail but determined Oliver, and the arrogant and hypocritical beadle Mr Bumble have taken on a life of their own and passed into our culture Who does not recognise the sentence, Please sir, I want some or If the law says th [...]

      This has been an exercise in exorcism for me.I have been enjoying reading Dickens lately but I knew that not until I tackled Oliver Twist would I have dealt with, and conquered, the devil.Images of black and white dreary images in a boxy TV have been projecting in the back of my mind since my childhood And growing up and becoming an adult cooking garlic did not help More substances were needed for a cleansing ritual Oliver Twist continued to inspire horrific fear in me.Expectedly, the endless sc [...]

      ReviewI only read Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens once, back in 6th grade when I was about 12 years old It was one of the classic books I d received as a Christmas present, and I loved Dickens other children s stories, so I had to read this one It s much harsh tho, and might be a little difficult for a 12 year old to take in without having a better picture of the world It s one of those books nagging at the back of my mind Please re read me I bet you ll like me a whole lot And it s probably tr [...]

    11. Bookdragon Sean says:

    15. Chris Horsefield says:

      Dickens famous story of a young orphan s struggle to survive on the streets of London is rightly one of his most remembered.Two outstanding characters have been contributed to literature Fagin and Jack Dawkins the Artful Dodger.Dickens writes Fagin as a puppet master, controlling the orphaned children as pickpockets and the adults like Bill Sikes as thieves His subterfuge of a penniless pauper with a kindly approach are at odds with the moments he steals gazing at his hidden stash of jewels and [...]

    16. Alex says:

      First of all, Oliver Twist is a shitty book His second, following the comedic Pickwick Papers, it shows Dickens reaching for new territory exposing the hopelessness and injustice of destitute life in London But it s maudlin, obvious, predictable, lame Oliver is such a simpering bitch that it s impossible to give a shit about him Bad people want to use him good people want to pamper him you are bored Dickens will write great books, but not yet.Second, Oliver Twist is a hateful book Dickens has cr [...]

    17. Aya Hamza says:

      Read it for school and decided to re read it because I just loved this book so much This book is worth re reading again and again I really love this classic, although it is so miserable and sad.I promise I will write a review for it after exams.

      Dear Oliver,Dear Ending,

    19. Mark says:

      I have in my 37 years of life avoided reading Charles Dickens My reason after having suffered through trying to read the so called English literature of his era think Thomas Harding, Emile Bronte and Mary Shelly I figured Dickens would be no better For some reason I can t now recollect, I decided to give Dickens a try I chose Oliver Twist And was immediately hooked Far from the boring narrative one finds the works of the other English writers I ve already mentioned, Dickens has a very personable [...]

      Yes, but what became of Oliver Let me tell you He became Oliver Twisted That s what He became Battersea s premier caulker that is, someone who seals gaps in drywall with waterproof sealant But Fagin s influence seeped into poor Oliver s caulking duties Instead of sealant, he would put sea lions, banana skins and discount copies of the musical Oliver Homeowners would thrash in their beds to the bleating of moribund sea lions Houses would slip away from their districts into horrible places like Wa [...]

      As expected of Charles Dickens, he really did a great work of literature that gives us the wisdom about good and evil in this world And that despite the evilness that exist in this world, there is still goodness in majority.

      Copy edited Just in case you thought I was a complete doofus the first time round.Yes, I am giving Oliver Twist one star What went wrong here Oh, about a million things First, the single reason I decided to read this book is because I got a new dog recently, and I named him Oliver Twist Then I realized I hadn t actually read his namesake, and I really like Dickens, and well it s orphans, right and there was this lovely new Penguin hardcover all nubbly and pretty and and now I m three books behin [...]

      This is where Dickens social revolt is of value than mere politics and avoids vulgarity of the novel with a purpose His revolt is not a revolt of the commercialist against the feudalist, of the Nonconformist against the Churchman, of the Free trader against the Protectionist, of the Liberal against the Tory If he were among us now his revolt would not be the revolt of the Socialist against the Individualist, or of the Anarchist against the Socialist His revolt was simply and solely the eternal [...]

      Well, my dears to acquire Fagin s dirty skin Oliver Twist was a fascinating tale, about a poor boy and his adventure or progress through hardships, evil people and places, enemies and allies Some say that this novel has anti Semitic descriptions but, although I don t want to defend Dickens, oh no, not that, my dears I believe that Dickens made Fagin a Jewish caricature intentionally, as a way to criticise his Victorian society Fagin had something fascinating in his character, he was talking alwa [...]

      It is hard to exit the original worlds created by Dickens I usually manage it crying like a baby Oliver Twist is top shelf storytelling The characters are amazing The setting is perfect The plot manages to throw out hundreds of threads and ties them all together at the end, while never losing or boring the reader Weakness This is probably nit picking, but the story seems to work out too well in the end Don t get me wrong, I know this is a social novel and FICTION, but I guess I just have a littl [...]

      Having seen the stage musical and two movie versions, I have wanted for a long time to read the original It was interesting to see how much was changed from the book Fagin is a much loathsome creature in the book treacherous, cunning, quick to anger, and not the jolly old naughty elf that he is in the musical version Nancy is also of a wretch, and not the kindly, big sister figure to Fagin s gang as she is portrayed in the film making her decision to act on Oliver s behalf seem daring, as [...]
