The story is about an orphan, Oliver Twist, who endures a miserable existence in a workhouse and then is placed with an undertaker. He escapes and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, leader of a gang of juvenile pickpockets.
Wonderful book. Amazingly captivating storytelling. And captures what the film doesn’t, the sincere godliness and prayfulness of Oliver and Rose, reflecting that of Dickens himself.
A great classic
