Publisher Description

Born to an unmarried woman who dies after giving birth, orphan Oliver Twist seems destined to slog through a dismal life in the workhouse. A rebellious cry for more gets Oliver banished, and ultimately lands him on the dismal streets of London. The young outcast finds refuge with Fagin and his band of thieves before fate intervenes and puts Oliver in the hands of a kindly benefactor. It is likely that Dickens's own early youth as a child laborer contributed to the story's development. Oliver Twist has been the subject of countless film and television adaptations.

Customer Reviews

Euripides's buddy ,

Very atmospheric

Peter Batchelor's performance of the unabridged text is a formidable achievement. He varies the voices and narration well enough to provide a satisfying listening experience. True, his Nancy does sound just like a rather grown-up version of Oliver himself (and thus does not convince) and some of his accents verge on the South African (which is where I think Batchelor hails from) but overall this is quite splendid and recommendable!
