About the book:

Oliver is an orphan living on the dangerous London streets with no one but himself to rely on. Fleeing from poverty and hardship, he falls in with a criminal street gang who will not let him go, however hard he tries to escape.

One of the most swiftly moving and unified of Charles Dickenss great novels, Oliver Twist is also famous for its re-creationthrough the splendidly realized figures of Fagin, Nancy, the Artful Dodger, and the evil Bill Sikesof the vast London underworld of pickpockets, thieves, prostitutes, and abandoned children. Victorian critics took Dickens to task for rendering this world in such a compelling, believable way, but readers over the last 150 years have delivered an alternative judgment by making this story of the orphaned Oliver Twist one of its authors most loved works.

This edition reprints the original Everymans introduction by G. K. Chesterton and includes twenty-four illustrations by George Cruikshank.
