Set in London's backstreet slums, Oliver Twist is the story of a workhouse orphan captured and thrust into a den of thieves, where some of Dickens's most depraved villains preside: the incorrigible Artful Dodger, the barbarous bully Bill Sikes, and the terrible Fagin, whose knavery threatens to send them all to the gallows. Dickens depicts London's impoverished underworld, and illustrates his belief that poverty leads to crime. At the heart of the drama, however, is Oliver, the orphan whose unsullied goodness leads him to salvation and who represents Dickens's belief in the principle of good triumphing at last.

This was a fantastic audiobook. I had never read or seen the movie of Oliver Twist, but couldn't bring myself to read the book as it always seemed to go so slowly. Not so with the audiobook. The narrator really brought the different characters to life. Highly recommend.

I had tried reading Oliver Twist in print twice, but could not get into it. This reading by Nadia May is superb. She has a charming voice. The story just comes alive. I highly recommend it.
