    "It was a struggle to keep up with the story and it takes a lot of concentration. The print is also on the small side. However, it's a rare masterpiece and a true classic that everyone should read. "

    "One of my favorite Christmas stories. So real and gritty yet tender and moving. For anyone that wants a closer look into the classic movie A Christmas Carol this is a must read."

    "A classic novel by Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist was written very early in the career of this novelest. The main character is a child who cohorts with a bunch of criminals and this novel tells his story. This novel is a great 19th century novel, but be prepared for the Olde English words. I enjoyed it, but it may be hard for someone to get a grasp of."

    "Oliver Twist is a certainly a classic by any means. But I fail to see the relationship in the Authors card game. It's a great read about a boy in a difficult time as he tries to overcome adversity. Hard to put down, Oliver Twist will keep you wanting for more. "

    "After searching for free books on Amazon I came across Oliver Twist which is a book from my child-hood. After reading the description it took me back to when I was a kid, I knew right then I had found what I was looking for. After a few moments, I could download this "free" book right to my Amazon fire tablet. Thank you, Amazon, you made my day!"

    "While I'm not a huge fan of Dickens to start with (never pay an author by the word), this is definitely one of his best. You really get to understand the plight of Oliver while never really taking away his agency fully, and it has some good twists and turns to it."

    "While this is a good book and should be honored and respected for its place in literary history, this book isn’t even on my top 1000 bucket list books. But things like these are very personal and subjective. It is a decent book so if you like to read maybe check it out."

    "This would be a great book to read for most people, however it's not quite up my alley. I will attest that it is written well and has a great plot, however I don't quite enjoy books like this, and prefer fantasy style books."

    "Oliver was an innocent and pure boy. When he was eleven, he was tried to be sold from the workhouse as an apprentice, but he escaped from there. In his way to London, he met a boy called Artful Dodger and then ended up with Fagin, the leader of a gang of thieves, who taught children how to steal."
