    1. I have always heard about Oliver Twist, but I hadn't read it. When I found it lying in my Father's shelf, I was thrilled. A tale about love, betrayal, and fairness, Oliver Twist does not disappoint. Though at the end, the family twist seemed a little far fetched, I couldn't help but admire Charles Dickens' originally made book. I was thrilled, surprised, and emotional. Oliver Twist is a book that everyone should try to read.

    2. I insisted hard to finish it, when I read it as a teenage, and when I reread it as a young. It was difficult for me to understand why Oliver is an orphan boy, why I should pity him, and why I should believe that it's almost his fault living so misrable,

    3. Oliver Twist is a really good book to read. The book is about a young boy called Oliver, who became an orphan after the death of his mother.He lived with other orphans, they were not treated well, they had less food and were shabbily dressed.Oliver was then adopted by Mr. Sowberry, an undertaker. Noah, who also works for the undertaker insulted Oliver's mother, Oliver didn't take what Noah said too well.He becomes violent, Oliver runs away. On the streets of London, he met the Artful Dodger, he [...]

    4. This book is about a young orphan named Oliver Twist. Poor Oliver Twist lost his mother when he was just a baby. Now he lives in a workhouse in England and misses his mother. He has been treated very badly and does not know what to do. so one day he runs away because he gets tired of the way they have been treating him. Will Oliver Twist make it. I recommend this book to people who like biography's. And I like this book because it has a lot of twists and turns.

    5. This book changes the story. It is not Oliver Twist. For example, in the scene where Oliver is sent by the robbers through the back window to open the front door, in the original, he decided that, even if he looses his life for it, he will not open the door, but warn the house. In this edition, he decided that the only thing he could do was open the door. That is a fair representation of the book. Read the original!

    6. This was so good, even though some bits were sad and some bits were scary. it was a bit like a mystery. I loved the ending. I can't believe Oliver and Rose found each other!

    7. This is about a boy named oliver. He was an orphan and lived in a work house. Then he has many other homes after that. He finds his real family, and lives happily! :)

    8. Pro: easy for young children to understand and follow the story. Con: Missing the language and details of the original and falls a little flat. This is not Dickens. It's a Childrens version of Oliver Twist. The story is all there but it's been summarized, the best way I can word it, to make it a fast and easy read. The vocabulary and life of the words is missing. I would have thrown it away and gotten the real book, but it's actually a good way to introduce the story to my 5 year old. We read it [...]

    9. I believe we were supposed to read this in Advanced Sophomore English but I couldn't understand most of the language or keep track of what was going on. Now that I have read it, in my 30s, I can't say much more than 20 years ago.

    10. I am definitely coming around to the idea of abridged classics. Gus wanted to learn more about the story of Oliver Twist and I wasn't about to try to read the original with him at age 9. These are a great introduction. He thoroughly enjoyed it.

    11. Oliver Twist, bocah malang yang tak tahu apa-apa tentang latar belakang hidupnya. Sejak lahir ia sudah tak memiliki orangtua. Ia dan beberapa anak laki-laki di panti asuhan selalu ditugaskan melakukan pekerjaan-pekerjaan berat dengan imbalan makanan yang minim. Dalam masa pertumbuhannya, Oliver seharusnya tumbuh tinggi dan sehat, tapi karena jarang mendapat daging sebagai santapan, tubuhnya ringkih dan kecil.Oliver bak bola yang dioper kesana kemari oleh pemilik panti asuhan. Ketika ia meminta s [...]

    12. Oliver is born in a workhouse in the first half of the nineteenth century. His mother dies during his birth, and he is sent to an orphanage. Along with the other orphans, Oliver is regularly beaten and poorly fed. After drawing the short stick, he walks up to the stern authoritarian, Mr. Bumble, and asks for more. Mr Bumble is outraged and he is put out of the workhouse. He is taken in by a funeral director but after an altercation with the other worker he runs away. He finds himself in London a [...]

    13. Their was a boy named Oliver Twist and when he was born his mother died and his father was already dead, so he had to go to a warehouse for orphans and when he asked for more food he was sent to a dungeon for 4 days and when he got out he was sent to the director if the board for the warehouse and they did the same thing when he asked for more food, but this time he had the shortest string so he had to ask. Then they decided to put a flyer up saying they will give money if anyone will take him a [...]

    14. My five-year-old and I both enjoyed this book. It's exactly what you think it is - a well done kids version of a Dicken's book.

    15. A really heartbreaking story of a young boy, Oliver Twist. The book gives the picture of living during Industrial Revolution in England where children were forced into child labour. The children lived in poor condition with little food to eat and no time to play. Their health also deteriorated due to grey smoke of the factories and dusts.Since the city of London was overcrowded, crimes happened everywhere because life expenses was high. In this book, they committed pick-pocketing. This book is l [...]

    16. This is a great book for younger readers not yet ready for the amazing words of Mr. Dickens. Like Great Expectations Retold (same series) this is a page turner even if you are not as ready for the original Oliver twist as you would like. I highly recommend this to any young readers and I thank my dad (Michael Huang) for introducing me to this book and Great Expectations (retold).

    17. old is gold. classic readings are always the ones to make you just happy and overwhelming. lovely story, but I guess I should had read the full one instead starts little books, it was a really fast reading. despite of all that, it is truly wonderful.

    18. This book was pretty good, but it wasn't what I thought it would be like, I thought that it was about Oliver Twist living his life in an orphanage, the story telling was okay, and the characters are okay too.

    19. "There was nothing to envy in the life of an orphan, especially an orphan raised in the workhouse"This novel content a lot of emotions and surprises, what a nice and wonderful story written by Charles Dickens.

    20. İt is about bad life of Oliver. He hasn't got mother and father. He lives in orphanage. Then, he went to different family but those families are bad. ı think, this book is very good.İt is classic but it isn't boring.

    21. I must say that this book is a success. the storyline is really good. a sad starting point to a happy ending, this book surprise me in every ways. oliver twist did have a sad background, but he's a boy with a twist storyline, as what his name states

    22. It was a great overview of the classic tale. Good for young readers to get the gist of the story without the full brunt of the harsh times.
