Book Review

By William Weger

Oliver Twist is a splendid Penguin Classic that's among the darkest and yet most touching novels that swirls around one of Dicken's most beloved heroes, the orphan Oliver Twist.

One of the most heartfelt and unified of Dickens’s great novels, Oliver Twist is also famous for its compelling characters— including Fagin, Nancy, the Artful Dodger, and the evil Bill Sikes who mirror the gritty nineteenth-century London underworld.
