Oliver Twist;Ife a map of contemporary London and all of George Cruikshank's original illustrationsFor than seventy years Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English speaking world With than 1700 titles Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors as well as up to date translations by award winning translators The film is better There I said it It has taken me five years to read this book five whole years To me that says a lot I just could never get into it Perhaps if I’d not seen the film I would have enjoyed the story I may have seen the charmless characters as part of Dickens attack on society and its lack of social justice Instead I just saw them for what they were charmlessThere’s just a certain lack of life within these pages Oliver the protagonist is somewhat unlikable himself And that’s odd He just did not have a great deal about him other than a child’s curiosity and a will to survive on the harsh streets of Victorian London I sympathised with him where I could I felt sorry for his situation though I never liked him So that made the book hard to read from the start I was not remotely invested in him For example if you compare this to another popular work of the era Jane Eyre you will see how poor Dicken’s characterisation is From the get go the reader is made to care for Jane and her plight Her story drives the narrative forward The social obstacles she faces feel like obstacles; they don’t define the story she does With Oliver I felt like it was the other way round and I simply could not enjoy the book as a result You have no idea how relieved I was to finish this today My battle is over I was determined to finish it Getting through Ulysses was easier than this

a great deal may be got for sevenpence halfpenny uite enough to overload its stomach and make it uncomfortable The elderly female was a woman of wisdom and experience; she knew what was good for children; and she had a very accurate perception of what was good for herself So she appropriated the greater part of the weekly stipend to her own use and consigned the rising parochial generation to even shorter allowance than was originally provided for them Thereby finding in the lowest depth a deeper still; and proving herself a very great experimental philosopher Everybody knows the story of another experimental philosopher who had a great theory about a horse being able to live without eating and who demonstrated it so well that he got his own horse down to a straw a day and would unuestionably have rendered him a very spirited and rapacious animal on nothing at all if he had not died four and twenty hours before he was to have had his first comfortable bait of air Unfortunately for the experimental philosopher of the female to whose care Oliver Twist was delivered over a similar result usually attended the operation of her system; for at the very moment when a child had contrived to exist upon the smallest possible portion of the weakest possible food it did perversely happen in eight and a half cases out of ten either that it sickened from want and cold or fell into the fire from neglect or got half smothered by accident; in any one of which cases the miserable little being was usually summoned into another world and there gathered to the fathers it had never known in this I love the way Dickens can describe callous starvation and casual murder of children for nothing than greed in such a way that I was actually chuckling because of his lusciously humorous phrasing This man could writeEventually Oliver’s life takes another turn from horrendously shitty to mega painful chunks of misery filled crap when he has the temerity to utter the famous words “Please sir I want some He gets beatings starvation verbal abuse neglectand ultimately finds himself alone on the streets with no means of survival There Oliver finds himself sucked into a life of petty criminality under the tutelage of “Fagin the Jew” who I thought was one of the most compelling Dickens characters everNote I know there is a lot of controversy about the portrayal of Fagin being one of the most egregious cases of anti Semitism in classic literature I think the criticism is fair but I also don’t think based on what I’ve read that Dickens’ had any malicious intent It is what it is and everyone can make their own decision on that point I thought the character of Fagin was fascinating and his signature phrase my dear which he uses in almost every sentence is still popping into my head than a week after finishing the novel Fagin while irredeemably evil and in some ways a criminal caricature Dickens draws him with such flair imbues him with a dimension and essence that I found very compelling His psychology his calculating intelligence and his soft words masking despicable actions is deftly laid out At times I almost got the impression that Fagin was intended to represent “the devil himself” with the way Dickens focuses on his corrupting influence In short the wily old Jew had the boy in his toils; and having prepared his mind by solitude and gloom to prefer any society to the companionship of his own sad thoughts in such a dreary place was now slowly instilling into his soul the poison which he hoped would blacken it and change its hue for ever On one level the life of Oliver Twist is one of the harshest most depressingly sad tales ever put to paper In lesser hands the heartache and forlornness of Oliver’s birth and tragic early life could have swallowed up the story and made the book a real chore to get through Good newsthese are not lesser handsDickens writing is so melodic that the narrative glides over the horror at a safe middle distance allowing us to observe and absorb the surroundings without drowning in the pain that Dickens describes I thought it was masterful Intimate yet detached Eventually the plot takes a mysterious turn as a shadowy figure arrives on the scene who has a connection to Oliver and his past that is slowly revealed over the last half of the story All of this leads to a marvelous ending that makes the rest of the story far enjoyable in retrospectsometimes positive warm and fuzzy resolutions are exactly what a story needs Dickens prose is buttery smooth while his mocking humor is cheddar sharp His balance is outstanding and his ability to poke fun at his readers’ society while avoiding making the reader themselves feel like a target is brilliant I had such a wonderful time reading this that I am left wondering why everyone doesn’t love Dickens as much as I do 50 stars HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATIONOkay Ms Austenyour turn again
