With a hungry, timid request of ‘Please,
sir. I want some more’, orphan Oliver Twist takes his first step
on a terrifying journey. In the dark, dangerous streets of Victorian
London Oliver enters the world of people so poor and desperate that they
will take any risk and know no mercy. Relentlessly pursued by the
menacing criminal world, who should Oliver trust? Are his true friends
strong enough to resist the determined plotting of desperate villains?
In this gripping tale of kidnapping, shooting and murder, Charles
Dickens shows the threats to a vulnerable boy’s existence and asks
the eternal question: which is more powerful, good or evil?

Reviews for Oliver Twist (Charles Dickens):


Apr 16, 2018

The story is naturally gripping, and my 6-year-old son claims he loved it (5-star!) when I read it to him. However, I thought it struggled to tell a too-complex story within the serious constraints of its very limited word count. Consequently, it treated some events in the narrative too cursorily, which resulted in a fair bit of confusion.

Příběh je to krásný, ale tahle knížka, je vhodná tak pro děti do 12 let. Převyprávění bylo strohé a děj až moc rychle ubíhal. V budoucnu si toto dílo určitě přečtu v klasickém zpracování.

A nice little re-telling. My mum bought me three of these editions of Dickens books so I can use them for teaching. Which is slightly premature, but oh well. It's a nice little read with extra details in the back.

Not really worth it even for a condensed version as I believe there are better ones out there. But it's good for younger kids to give them an idea of the story. I just can't picture any use outside of a classroom.
