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.

Terrific recording, but a slight problem with two chapters
Peter Bachelor is my favorite reader of Dickens, and he does not disappoint. This is a great audiobook for a great price. Beware, though, that a few pages at the end of chapters 8 and 50 are missing from the recording.
Great audiobook for a great price! Would recommend!!
