An accurate retelling of Charles Dickens' timeless classic.
One of a series of retellings of classic world literature from publisher Real Reads. True to the original plot, characters and theme, this Real Read also reflects the original author's style and syntax. A brilliant, lively, enjoyable introduction to Dickens.
With a hungry, timid request of 'Please sir. Can I have some more?' nine year old 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, Dickens explores the threats to a vulnerable boy and asks the eternal question: which is more powerful, good or evil?
