Oliver Twist

The story of little Oliver, raised in an orphanage, used and abused in a funeral home, which the escape route to London is recruited by a gang of thieves that he does not recognize as such, is not only a superb showcase of very famous Dickensian creations (Fagin , the leader of the gang of juvenile delinquents, the thief Jack Dawkins, the murderer Sikes, the prostitute Nancy, the mysterious Monks, Oliver's relentless pursuer), but a magnificent and thrilling tale of innocence beleaguered.
