Charles Dickens uses the novel Oliver Twist similarly to his many other novels to portray the life of the poor through the struggle of the main character. Oliver Twist is a bast@rd child who is forced into an orphanage (workhouse) for the poor. He eventually runs off and gets tangled up with a group of other poor children who steal for their leader in crime Fagin. While there, he learns the tricks of the trade and also discovers that it is not the life for him and struggles to get out. Charles Dickens does an excellent job of ridiculing the upper and middle class for their treatment of the poor, while delivering an excellent story about the adventures of Oliver Twist.

Not the whole book

This version is only the first half of the book, I believe.

    Errors

    Just started reading and I have noticed many errors already. I was hoping it would be a good copy, but it has many mistakes, like emails instead of smalls. / in the middle of words. It makes it hard to read.
