Reviews

Oliver Twist (Version 7)

(5 stars)

It’s been awhile since I’ve read anything by Dickens. I made the mistake of reading a biography of him and was rather let down so I found it hard to separate the man from his work. This was an excellent book to get me back into it. I found the story itself very satisfying, and maybe not QUITE as heavy as some of his other works. The narration by Hamlet, as always, was perfection. I won’t listen to anyone else read Dickens. He keeps the story flowing, even with those run-on sentences Dickens seems rather fond of.
