English classic

It's a very known English classic that could be seen as precursor to Les Misérables but which fails to really understand the roots of poverty in England and most of all is an awful antisemitic text. Listen to it to make your own judgement!

Awesome narration

The narration on this was fantastic. Listening to Fagan makes your skin crawl - it's that good. I had to get the unabridged version. I can't imagine Dickens with the wonderful commentary cut out. I highly recommend this book and am going to check out what other's have the same narrator.

Magnifique lively narrator

What an amazing narrator, what an actor, what a delightful pleasure it was to listen to these many voices, to these many characters performed by one mighty talented man.
I had so much fun listening to it, listening to him that I must say BRAVO !!!

Captivating storytelling

Having known only the musical version of this story, I was delighted to really experience the the rich writing of the novel. This particular narrator was fabulous- really colorful voice infused with humor and weight, and gave life to all the characters expertly. What a treat!

Brilliant Performance

Oliver Twist is a well told story, and in this case it was narrated fantastically. I don't usually like when the narrator tries to do "voices", but in this case he was great.

Absolutely wonderful

What made the experience of listening to Oliver Twist the most enjoyable?

I have never read or seen the entire story, so this was a delight. Martin Jarvis brought the characters to life and was consistent throughout the whole story. I wouldn't even think of giving this anything less than 4 stars.

Rightfull Called a Classic

I read a modern sequel to Oliver Twist, called Dodge & Twist and was bothered by the constant foul language. So, I decided to read the original, to see if there was as much cursing in it. There was some, but nowhere near as much as the sequel.

I was familiar with the story — who isn’t? But I had never read an unabridged version of this before. My father had Classics Illustrated Comics, and I have “read” many of the classics that way, but not many of the originals.

As usually happens when I do read the original of one of these great classics, I am amazed at the skill of the author. These have rightly earned their place among the classics, and so-called sequels, written by modern authors, pale by comparison.

Great performance on this one, too.

Its Just Me

This was my first attempt at getting through Oliver Twist, I am mot sure why I didn't think ot woyld be as heavy anf wordy as it is. Its a good, deep, interesting book. A Lot of brain and emotional and moral food. I simply had a difficult time getting through some parts bwcause it seems like they rambled ceaselessly.
