    Hear Dickens' gift for social commentary in this classic story of the poor orphan, Oliver. In this time-tested classic, Dickens aimed to expose the filth of the London underworld as well as attack the inhumanity of the New Poor Law of 1834. This audiobook is a stunning performance by the award-winning Miriam Margolyes, who is considered one of the most knowledgeable and brilliant actors/interpreters of Dickens.

    Overall

    Miriam Margoylis is an amazing reader. It is difficult to believe that it is only one person reading - considering the voices and characatures. As far as Dicken's Oliver Twist - his anti-semitism offended me and found that the book goes on and on and on - probably because it was written in monthly installments and he needed to stretch it. To enjoy the writings and tolerate the cartoonish characters and not dismiss the novel as a children's tale - it is important to remember that his writings were a landmark for his time and his depiction of poorly treated children were meant to and succeeded to incite public reform.
