Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Anything by Dickens is a delight to read, and Oliver Twist is no exception. Like all his works, this book is all about human nature. Good and bad are contrasted strongly in this book, particularly in the characters of Rose Maylie on the one side and Fagin and Bill Sikes on the other, and individual characters seem to personify certain aspects of human experience in general, while losing none of their appeal as complex individuals in their own right.

Whether you’re looking for a thought provoking take on the human condition, or just a great story written by a master of the English language, Oliver Twist is sure to deliver.
